Austin in Travis County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
House was the private home (about 1910-1947) of the Wahrenberger family.
A significant example of 19th century architectural evolution. This house was built in a simple vernacular Greek Revival style in 1867, by Frederich Huster. A porch and second story in rear were added about 1873. Victorian phase began 1887, with attachment of metal cornices and pediment (removed 1960); ended with addition of the Classical Revival portico and a sleeping porch in 1916. Porch was dismantled and facade altered 1946. Property is maintained by Revell & Co. and owned by a Wahrenberger heir.
