323 West Woodlawn Avenue

Built in 1904, this tall house with its picturesque asymmetrical massing, high windows, steep roof, surrounding verandah, and cheerful color scheme, is the ideal Victorian Queen Anne design, which was so popular throughout America in the late-nineteenth century.

The handsome interior woodwork, showing the influence of British architect Charles Eastlake, is especially noteworthy. The home has beautifully detailed period wallpaper that lends a richness and elegance to its grand ballroom. Unusual in San Antonio, the home has a 1500-sq-ft basement; it was used as a speakeasy during Prohibition. The home was lovingly restored by Dr. Wright; the entry is a fantasy of ornate Queen Anne-style woodwork.
