Villa Finale's
Meusebach House

414 King William Street

Located directly across the street from Villa Finale, the Meusebach House was first built by Smith Ellis and his wife Josie in 1886, before they built and moved into the grand two-story house now located next door.  This cottage was sold to Otto Meusebach in 1889.  The
Meusebachs lived in the home until the early part of the 20th century.

Walter Mathis purchased the home in 1974.  He received an award from the San Antonio Conservation Society in 1976 for his restoration of the Meusebach House.

Today, the house is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is used by Villa Finale for meetings and special presentations.
