I was looking around for George Hermann's main place of residence. His mansion after he made his wealth.

It was hard to pinpoint a residential address.  George Henry Hermann became involved in real estate and had several rental buildings, wood shops, retail buildings, residences, etc.  Also, people move around in their lives.  I'm sure Mr. Hermann lived in several homes during his life.

The newspaper The Houston Post dated September 16, 1898 had a classified ad by G.H. Hermann that specified him living at 512 Rusk. The 1900 census shows Thomas J. Ewing as head of household at 512 Rusk, with George Hermann as a lodger.

For Rent- My brick building, two-story, 50x70 feet, No. 505 and 507 Travis street, same block as Capitol Hotel, occupied by Alkemeyer's Dry Good store; also eight-room dwelling house, corner Brazos and Capitol. G.H. Hermann, 512 Rusk.
