Manuel and Josefa Sánchez House

-A A +A
1875. Washington Ave. at Gutiérrez St.

Also built by descendants of Jesús Treviño, the house appears more commercial than residential in scale and in appearance. Its flat roof, linear plan, plastered quoins, and metal cornice reflect a mainstream commercial style of the 1870s. The delicately carved plaster pilaster bisecting its front elevation ties it to the decorative architectural traditions of the border.
