Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 15, 1970):
This large Spanish Colonial town house is the only remaining example in Texas of an aristocratic 18th-century Spanish residence. Constructed about 1749, it was originally intended as the residence of the commanding officer of the presidio.

Similar to last reporting period. Walls of the museum are cracking and the adobe requires repair. Paintings and artifacts suffer due to lack of climate-controlled storage.

No changes since the last report.

Recommendation/Change since last report:
The city of San Antonio needs to stabilize and repair the building.
