Walter House

-A A +A
1852. 215 Petersburg St.

One of the best preserved of the pre–Civil War Castroville houses, it is believed to have been built all at once. The low pedimented door and window frames appear to be original with the window openings distinctively small in scale. Like the Burger House ( CJ4), it has a single fireplace in the rear shed room.
