Hilgers House – May

This one and one-half story wood-framed house with a gambrel roof has an unusual curving brace in the roof peak. It has been altered by the application of asbestos siding. The first recorded owner was William Hilgers, a yardmaster with the Texas & Pacific Railroad. With more complete documentation and restoration, the house may be eligible for the National Register. The Hilgers House was moved to this location from 815 Travis Avenue in 1986. The asbestos siding was removed at that time. It may be eligible for the National Register as part of a boundary extension of the present Leuda-May Historic District. The right photo was taken in 2006.
