Trueheart-Adriance Building | 212 22nd St | Galveston

Recommended Posts

From the Galveston County Daily News (need a subscription, it's behind a paywall):

 

A historically notable building in Galveston’s downtown is on the market. After years of evaluation, the board of directors of the Junior League of Galveston County is selling the Trueheart-Adriance Building, 212 22nd St.
 

Prominent Victorian-era island architect Nicholas Clayton designed the building, which was constructed in 1882. The Junior League acquired it in 1969 and rehabilitated it in 1971.
 

It wasn’t an easy decision, but best serves the building and the organization, said Terry Lynn Jones, president of the Junior League.
 

“Our biggest goal is to find a buyer that will love this building and put it to good use for the whole community to enjoy and appreciate,” Jones said in a letter to members.
 

The Junior League, which promotes volunteerism, isn’t able to convene full meetings of its membership in the building because there isn’t enough room, Jones said. But the organization doesn’t have immediate plans to buy another building, and will lease space when needed for events and storage, Jones said. The organization also is working to balance committee meetings between the north and south county to fairly accommodate its 300 members, Jones said.
 

In this fiscal year, the organization spent about $30,000 on building insurance, security, utilities, upkeep and repairs, Jones said in the letter. That money would be better spent in the community, Jones said.
 

The Junior League of Galveston County was the first organization to commit its talent, effort and money toward the purchase of a historic property in The Strand District, which in the 1970s saw the beginning of restorations and repurposing of old buildings that continues today. The Junior League plans to dedicate a plaque at the building to remind everyone of the history and its efforts, Jones said.
 

The organization has enlisted V.J. Tramonte of Joe Tramonte Realty to sell the building, she said.

 

The building originally housed the real estate offices of H.M. Trueheart & Co.

Update on the Trueheart-Adriance Building in Galveston, 212 22nd St. 

From the Galveston County Daily News (need a subscription, it's behind a paywall):

 

Less than a week on the market, the historic Trueheart-Adriance Building, 212 22nd St. in the island’s downtown, had nine offers, some for more than the asking price. Now, it’s under contract. But V.J. Tramonte of Joe Tramonte Realty, who is the listing agent, declined to divulge the potential buyer’s name until a sale is finalized.
 

In late May, and after years of evaluation, the board of directors of the Junior League of Galveston County said it would sell the building.
 

Prominent Victorian-era island architect Nicholas Clayton designed the building, which was constructed in 1882. The Junior League acquired it in 1969 and rehabilitated it in 1971.

Update on the Trueheart-Adriance Building in Galveston, 212 22nd St. 

From the Galveston County Daily News (need a subscription, it's behind a paywall):


Less than two months after the Junior League of Galveston County put it on the market, the historically notable Trueheart-Adriance Building, 212 22nd St. in the island’s downtown, has new owners.

John and Catherine Buergler, who live in New Jersey, but are from Galveston, have acquired the beloved building with immediate plans to rent out the upstairs for office space and eventually rent out the downstairs space.

The Buerglers plan, several years down the road, to convert the building into a loft for their personal use, Catherine Buergler said. They also plan to soon replace the dilapidated shutters and make some improvements to the brickwork, she said.

...Island Realtor V.J. Tramonte of Joe Tramonte Realty represented the Junior League in the transaction. Casey Howell with Re/Max Leading Edge in Galveston represented the Buerglers.
