This Danish castle-inspired home was built in 1890 by John Clement Trube, who came in his youth from Kiel, Denmark. His architect was Alfred Muller.

A successful businessman, Trube married Veronica Durst, an heir of early Texan Peter Durst: family had nine children.

"Castle" has withstood many gulf storms; is still owned and occupied by members of Trube family. Solid brick structure has Belgian cement finish.
