1150 E. Adams Street
Built 1906-1912, this three-story building is one of the original buildings of the core historic Market Square district. At one time the Park Hotel was located in the two upper floors, while the first floor was used for retail establishments. It was later acquired by the City of Brownsville and renovated in 1987. During the renovation, the building entrances and windows facing Adams Street and the 12th Street were removed, and the remaining windows were reduced. These changes reoriented the main façade/entrance away from the 12th Street towards the fountain between it and the San Fernando Buildings.
