McGloin House (San Patricio County)

McGloin House (San Patricio County)

This home was the first frame building of the old colony of San Patricio de Hibernia.
James McGloin, an Irish empresario and one of the primary settlers of the area, built the home in 1855.  The Corpus Christi Area Heritage Society currently owns this unique vacation home rental.

The McGloin House is located next to Round Lake, a private oxbow lake extending from the Nueces River where fishing, canoeing & kayaking are encouraged!

This historic homestead and the 350 acres of woods, contains a riverfront and lush pastures upon which it sits allows one to experience South Texas culture and history first hand.

The McGloin home also sits on an area of South Texas that the Lipan and Karankawa Indians called home long before European civilization came to America.
When not occupied, the house is open for public tours.
