A modern apartment building now stands on the block's southeast corner, where Dr. Hilgartner lived 100 years ago.

The Palm House, on the southwest corner, is still standing, but it was converted to office space in the 1990s.

On the northwest corner, a modern, 2-story office building has replaced the old Bohn house.

On the northeast corner, 1970s alterations have left the Byrne-Reed House almost unrecognizable; but its current owner, Humanities Texas, has plans to restore it.
