Alamo Bungalow

-A A +A
c. 1915. 103 E. Mulberry St.

With the Alamo parapet appearing all over town in one form or another, there had to be one on a private residence, and this is it, locally known as the Alamo bungalow. Whoever was responsible for the design of this delightful bungalow obviously had enough respect for the original source to shy away from an exact copy, with the peak of the parapet being pointed rather than curved. Evidently the builder was not satisfied with just one Alamo parapet, for there is another atop the garage behind the house.
