You are welcome Emelia. The oldest structure dates back to 1841 and was called the Neale House. Here is the writeup accompanying the print.
Brownsville’s oldest wood frame house was built by an Englishman, William Neale, who had served in the Mexican Navy in the early 1820s. Later, he operated the Matamoros to Boca Del Rio Stage Line, and served as Brownsville’s mayor from 1858 to 1859 and from 1866 and 1869. The house is built of imported lumber. During the First Cortina War, William Peter Neale, a son of the builder, was killed in the right front room. In the 1950s, one of Neale’s direct descendants, Mamie del Valle, donated the house to the Brownsville Art League (now the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art). It was moved from its original location, 625 E. 14th St., to its current one on Texas Southmost College campus and later ownership was transferred to the city.
Pinobai!!! If you make these into a book, please let us know! I'm sorry we missed it, being in Wisconsin, bit appreciate the video!
Thanks for using your art to focus on the architecture and history of the Valley. I grew up in the Valley and love it! I am glad to get to see the images in your short video. I want to learn more about the oldest structure next to the border fence.
