Inscription. One of the finest remaining structures in San Antonio's late 19th-century commercial district, this building was designed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style by James Riely Gordon (1864-1937) and was completed in 1891. Over the years the first floor has housed dry goods and furniture stores. The second story served for a time as the headquarters of the city's scientific society and as the real estate office of John Stevens, who owned the building until the 1930s.

Entered in the National Register of Historic Places, 1984.
