D. Nelson Limber Memorial Observatory was founded in the summer of 1979 in the Texas Hill Country near San Antonio as a private observatory and residence. It is named in memory of a distinguished faculty member of the University of Virginia Department of Astronomy.

The 0.4 m telescope is used mainly to monitor the broadband linear polarization of early emission line stars with a Glan prism photopolarimeter.
