Own a piece of Texas History – In the land of Shanghai Pierce and Charlie Siringo

After spending the last nine years restoring the historic W. C. Williams Building, it’s time to allow a new owner to enjoy the structure’s intrinsic beauty and amenities. Located on the Texas Gulf Coast in the resort town of Palacios, TX, the Shrimp Capital of Texas, and within view of beautiful Tres Palacios Bay, this Romanesque style brick building has to be seen to be appreciated.
