George Kraigher House

525 Paredes Line Rd, Brownsville, Cameron County

The George Kraigher House is the work of internationally known architect Richard J. Neutra. An Austrian-born emigrant, Neutra brought modern architectural practices to the United States before World War II. His work encompasses some of the most important examples of Modern design in the country. This is one of the few Neutra designed houses outside of California and the only single-family house he designed in Texas. It is threatened by neglect, vandalism, and water penetration.

UPDATE (June 2014): The building has been restored by UT Brownsville but is currently unused. Read more about its history and restoration here.

UPDATE (February 2016): The building has a tenant and a historic marker has been installed.
