© Trube Castle
The Trube Castle is recognized as one of the most distinctive and architecturally significant buildings in Texas. Built in 1890 by renowned architect Alfred Muller, the castle was occupied for years by John Clement Trube and his wife Veronica Durst Trube. The 7,000-square-foot castle was meant to imitate the timeless castles of Kiel, Denmark, where John Clement Trube spent most of his young life.
Trube Castle boasts 21 rooms, 52 windows, an observation deck, and a magnificent fireplace with a stained glass inset. After the Trubes passed away, the property was occupied and maintained by their heirs. At one point, the castle became a bed and breakfast, but after being turned over to different owners, it was converted into a center for weddings, parties, receptions, and other special events.
