The house was built in 1890 by Max Deutz of German decent, he was son of Joseph Deutz, founder of the Laredo National Bank and of Deutz Bro. Hardware Store. In 1931 Mrs. Mosella Mann, mother of ambassador Thomas C. Mann (Mann Rd. named after him.) died burned to death by cause of an explosion while cleaning the floors with kerosene. His husband married a couple of years later to a woman 30 years young. Mrs. Mann sometimes can be seen at night in the windows of the second floor and the strong smell of kerosene is present at times at the home.
