Bippert-Kueck House

-A A +A
1847; 1869 additions. 505 Houston St.
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

Begun as a one-room structure and expanded in 1869 when two more rooms were added to the right side of the house, this represents the simple character and the lack of exterior decorative touches typical of many of Castroville's early homes. The rear elevation of the house has been remodeled.
