Corpus Christi in Nueces County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Julius Lichtenstein House
Julius and Carrie Lichenstein built this house in 1905 at 715 North Chaparral. The style is Colonial Revival, in a trend popularized by architect Stanford White of New York. Elegant as this structure was--with its stately front door, elliptical porch, peaked roof and other handsome features--the Lichensteins built and moved into a larger house in 1913, owning this place, however, until 1926. Moved nine blocks north in 1929, this structure, survivor of many fads, stands as an exhibit of a distinctive housing style. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1976.
