Isaac Villarreal House (Florence Johnson Scott House)

-A A +A
Florence Johnson Scott House
c. 1870. N. Avasolo St. at E. Main St.

This dwelling later served as the residence of noted regional historian Johnson Scott. Bucolic in feel, the one-story brick cottage with extended parapets features segmented arch openings with glass-paneled casement windows with tiled flower boxes. In a state of disrepair, the cottage is exemplary of its type in Rio Grande City, a type so common that it is interspersed throughout the city amidst large-scale commercial and residential buildings.
