Marker Text Prominent Kerrville rancher, businessman, philanthropist, and civic leader Charles A. Schreiner built the original part of this house in 1897 as a wedding gift for his son C. A., Jr. In 1912 it became the home of Schreiner's grandson A. C. Schreiner, Jr. (1890-1963), also an active area business leader. The second floor, arched porch, and tile roof were added in 1927. Designed by noted San Antonio architect Alfred Giles, they reflect influences of the Spanish style. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1981
