This restored two-story brick building constructed in the early 20th century, was once home to two early Laredo merchant families. With its size and pivotal location on the banks of the Rio Grande, this Italianate-style residence is representative of the grand houses that populated the San Agustín District in the early twentieth century. The block, with several historic properties, is located immediately east of San Agustín Cathedral, Laredo’s oldest landmark and San Agustín Plaza, which dates to 1767.

Bounded by Santa Maria Ave., the Texas-Mexican tracks, the Missouri Pacific tracks and Hidalgo Street on the south, the St. Peter’s neighborhood was developed between 1881 and World War 1. The neighborhood was named for St. Peter’s Church, on 1500 Matamoros, which was constructed in 1896-1897. It was Laredo’s second Catholic Church and the first for English speakers. Many of the homes and the Church structure remain in working condition today.
