(English)
Built beginning 1877 for Victoriano Fernandez, the Border Brick style structures were built in stages, possibly accounting for the varying heights. The last of the three buildings was completed in 1886.
They were designed as a combination commercial space/private residence, and originally housed Fernandez's furniture store.
Since then, the buildings have been occupied by the San Fernando Hotel, saloons and a variety of commercial establishments.
