The History of the Property
1037 South Alamo - The Anton Heinen House The three lots at this corner became the property of George Altgelt in 1885. They had been sold by Thomas J. Devine in 1869 and had changed hands several times before Mr. Altgelt acquired them. He divided the property into two tracts of a lot and a half each. On the north portion he built his home, which was numbered 77 Mill Street. The City Directory also lists his Negro coachman by the name of Frank Jackson at the same address. In 1891 this home was sold to Julius Tips, hardware merchant. The same year Mrs. Jacobine Eichmeyer bought the lot and a half at the corner. She built the present house, then a wooded frame structure, which she rented to druggist Edward Tips. The next year Mrs. Eichmeyer sold the house to Edward William Reuss, proprietor of the City Drug Store. he lived there eighteen years and in 1911 sold the property to Anton P. Heinen, who made changes to the house as it appears today. At that time Mr. Heinen managed the Manhattan Bar. This was his home until his death in the 1960's.
