This two-story Victorian house was built in 1876 for the family of Walter Tips (1841-1911), a prosperous hardware merchant. A native of Germany and Confederate veteran, Tips served in the state senate, 1893-96. The home was remodeled in 1909 to its present appearance. Another prominent businessman, Theo P. Meyer (1878-1966), occupied the residence from 1925 to 1966. The structure was originally located adjacent to the historic Bremond Block west of downtown Austin. Scheduled for demolition in 1975, it was rescued by Franklin Savings Association and moved to this site for restoration.
