Basse Brothers Warehouse

-A A +A
c. 1910. 304 N. Adams St.
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

This little building is all that survives of a company that produced cast-concrete blocks that imitated cut stone for builders and architects in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Texas. The warehouse itself advertises the company products, with the cast blocks forming most of the exterior walls. The company's blocks can be seen on a number of other Fredericksburg buildings, most notably the massive Prairie Style residence of Henry Basse ( NB55).
