TRUBE HOUSE. Trube House, at 1627 Sealy Avenue in Galveston, Texas, was designed by Alfred Muller and built in 1890 for John Clement Trube, a native of Denmark who was active in local merchandising and real estate. The thirty-room, modified–Gothic Revival home has a mansard roof and twelve gables and is noted for its false chimney, which contains a stained-glass window.
