The Adams House is located at the corner of 43rd Street and Avenue G in the historic Austin neighborhood of Hyde Park. The home was built in 1911 as a one-story, L-shaped bungalow that was later purchased by Mr. and Mrs. William T. Adams and elevated to a two-story colonial revival home. Adams House was later renovated by a historic preservation architect and was restored back to the original pine floors, sash windows, slate flooring and twelve-foot ceilings. Sidney Lock purchased the property in 1997 and converted it to a Bed and Breakfast and, in 2010, became an Austin Historic Landmark. The Adams House was recently voted "Best Bed & Breakfast" by The Austin Chronicle for 2012!
