Slideshow Austin: Historic Bremond block walking tour

Not quite the historic corridor tour I expected but fascinating nonetheless.  The historic Bremond block of downtown Austin was built between 1850 and 1910 and is almost exclusively occupied by non-profits.

This John Bremond House (left) built in 1870 is taken very good care of by the Texas Classroom Teacher’s Association.
