English:
Built 1893-1894 for Henry M. Field, the commercial and residential complex covers half a block. The two-story gallery, spindle cornice and railings indicate that the building is a mix of Border Brick style and French Creole architecture. The complex includes former servants’ quarters, a carriage house and an upholstery shop. In 1919 Andres Pacheco purchased the building for his hide and wholesale farm tool distribution business.
