4.2/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web
Located at the center of the King William National Historic District and along the world-famous River Walk, Villa Finale is the name given by Walter Nold Mathis to what he knew would be his last home. The house, which sits on 1.5 acres of former farm land for the Alamo, contains Mr. Mathis's collection of over 12,500 fine and decorative arts. Villa Finale proved to be the catalyst in Mr. Mathis's King William preservation efforts; he went on to buy and at least partially restore over 12 properties in the neighborhood. Mr. Mathis's efforts in historic preservation played a major part in the revitalization of King William and provided the foundation to Villa Finale becoming the 27th National Trust Historic Site.
