Texas Federation of Women's Clubs Building

-A A +A
1933, Henry Coke Knight. 2312 San Gabriel St.

This stately Georgian Revival building commands attention with its dark red brick and white trim. The formal composition of a central two-story temple form connected by lower wings to two-story projecting wings may have been derived from schemes often used for country houses by eighteenth-century English architects Robert and James Adam.
