In 1905, Thomas E. Thrasher purchased The Allan House from the school board and it became known as The Allan-Thrasher House.
During the 94 years that the house was owned by the Thrashers, it was often host to relatives who came for holidays, to spend summers, and to live while attending The University of Texas. On December 31, 1999, Daniel Ross, an attorney and longtime Austin businessman, purchased The Allan House.
Determined to restore the elegant building to its previous splendor, he oversaw a complete renovation that maintained the home’s historic beauty, while updating it with modern conveniences. Mr. Ross considers himself to be a steward of the home and its history. He is ever mindful that The Allan House is now one of approximately one hundred houses in Austin that are 130 or more years old, a last vestige of times past, and an architecture disappearing among the towering buildings of downtown Austin.
