Established 1880-1894 by Miguel Fernandez, a wealthy Spanish merchant, this was a bone and hide yard built to cater to the Texas Gulf Coast cattle industry. Built in the Border Brick style, it is one of the few remaining buildings that composed the historic core of Market Square in downtown Brownsville.

Establecido 1880-1894 por Miguel Fernández, un comerciante adinerado español, el edificio fue construido para uso de industria de hueso y piel del vaca. La arquitectura es del estilo del ladrillo regional. Es uno de los pocos edificios originales que restran de los cuales formaban el centro historico de la zona coincida como la Marqueta.
