KOVNER-BOBY HOMESTEAD

Built in 1851 on land acquired in the original Spanish Land Grant, "Rincon de Oso" of 1831, the Kovner-Boby Homestead is a hand-crafted 19th century masterpiece. Lumber used for the constuction was all hand-sawed, and the home features two chimneys and three gables. During the American Civil War it was commissioned as a hospital, and again later during a Yellow Fever Epidemic.

It was purchased by the Boby Family in 1936 and remained their home until 1981, when it was purchased by Morris Lichetenstein and donated to the city. The City of Corpus Christi then relocated the home to Heritage Park and commissioned its restoration.

The restoration project spanned several months and Miller Painting was responsible for the entire exterior restoration of this historic home. During the exterior restoration special old-growth lumber was used during the restoration to ensure continuity with both the look and the spirit of the home.

You can find out more information about this home and other historical sites in the Corpus Christi area by visiting the Corpus Christi Landmark Division.
