Marker Text Built in three stages beginning in 1858, this Caliche block vernacular double house sits on a site which was once part of the Alamo farmlands. Reflecting Spanish and German influences, it is a good example of a once-common San Antonio house type and features original built-in end chimneys. The home was built by Martin Engleman, a wealthy German immigrant. He sold it to prominent businessman and city Alderman Martin Muench in 1865.
