Built in 1935 the largest adobe building in all of Texas was put up right here in the middle of McAllen. This large Spanish style mansion was put up and designed as a very lavish residence for a family. As most things happen the family was unable to hold on to the home forever and for financial reasons over the next 60 years the home flipped between different owners. The house went up for sale again and the 10,000 sq. ft. mansion could not seem to draw attention and the only bidders wanted the house demolished. The citizens of the city stood together and the City of McAllen purchased the property. In 2006 the mansion got a new sense of purpose as it became known as the “mansion with a mission” and joined forced with the McAllen Parks and Recreation Department. The 20-acre property joins to with the World Birding Center organization to present you a wonderful place to come and learn about the flowers and birds of Texas..
