Anton Wulff House

-A A +A
c. 1870. 107 King William St.

With its tall side tower, the Wulff House stands out at the head of the street, looking toward downtown. This Italianate house built by an unidentified builder-architect is of random-sized limestone blocks that were never covered by stucco. Perhaps in response to the proximity of the river, the main level is placed above a raised basement and is reached by a short staircase. The large wooden veranda on the east side of the house marks the location of the parlor space within. While not a house museum and not furnished as one, it is accessible to the public as the headquarters of the San Antonio Conservation Society since 1975. Anton Wulff was a commission merchant and operated his business on Military Plaza.
