Vickrey-Berry House (Historic Site #35)
The W.R. Berry home was built in 1870 by J.W. Vickrey out of cut rock blocks, the walls being 20 inches thick, and two stories high. At the turn of the century the rock was on three quarters of the house, but not the foundation, as some were removed and used on some of Mr. Berry’s buildings, the most notable being the Salado Bank, which was built exclusively with rock from the W.R. Berry residence. The remaining rock walls were extended to the one story cypress house now in use. The house is a currently a boutique store. (SHSL)
