Mendoza-Saenz Family History
This home built in El Refugio, Texas is described as a stone house, a "casa de piedra" or a house constructed of "sillares" which are large blocks of limestone, also known as "Jose Antonio Lopez sandstone" from the surrounding region. People who lived in this type of house in the 1800's were rich landowners, hacendados and ranchers who owned a considerable amount of land and raised cattle, sheep, goats, and horses.
