1951, Ruth Young McGonigle. 124 Paredes Line Rd.

This is a regionalist experiment by McGonigle organized around a walled courtyard. Its large-scale, rough brick, which resembles more the texture and shape of adobe, as well as its exposed rafter ends, recall the built heritage of the upper western regions of the Rio Grande, as opposed to that of Brownsville. Also by McGonigle, the Hert House (1960), at 244 Calle Cenizo, quotes the Border Brick style with its pilasters, dentiled cornice, and walled street elevation
