Marker Text One of the finest remaining structures in San Antonio's late 19th-century commercial district, this building was designed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style by James Riely Gordon (1864-1937) and was completed in 1891. Over the years the first floor has housed dry goods and furniture stores. The second story served for a time as the headquarters of the city's scientific society and as the real estate office of John Stevens, who owned the building until the 1930s.
