The site now occupied by The Homestead House furniture store was once where the Conroe Hotel stood, built about 1890, and burned down in 1891. The property was owned by Isaac Conroe who sold to Conroe businessman John Wahrenberger to build his first store there. The store was purchased by the Witherspoons who rebuilt it into a hotel and added brick. After years of many owners, the hotel was bought by the Bartholet’s in 1977 who demolished the hotel brick-by-brick salvaging as much as they could to reuse it and build the structure that stands today.
Maintaining the rich history of the existing brick, we plan to build above the current structure, adding two more stories to the current building. The first story of the building will remain dedicated to retail storefronts while the additional stories will offer loft-style apartments for rent. Living walking distance from your favorite dining, shopping, and activities in Downtown Conroe, these loft-style apartments will be the first to bring downtown living to historic Conroe.
