1. Goodman Building Marker
Inscription. Probably constructed in the early 1890s, this commercial building is noted for its decorative brickwork and iron railing. Built for grocer Joseph Goodman, the main floor served as his store until 1924. The upper floor was used from 1892 until about 1896 for Jacob Bicklerís German and English Academy, an elite preparatory school. From its significant location near the State Capitol, the Goodman Building stands as a reminder of Austinís early commercial history.
 
Erected 1969 by the Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 6438.)
