AUSTIN (AP) A Texas family has bought a new home for an old shipbuilding factory, and they’re happy to be part of it.
The Kresge family moved into a three-bedroom home at the old Lufkin Shipyard in the San Antonio area.
It was built by the shipbuilding company in the 1890s.
The house has been on the market for about a year and has been in the family for several years, said Lachie Kresger, who manages the family real estate company, Kresges Real Estate.
They’ve owned it since the 1990s and the Kresgs moved in in early August, she said.
They bought the home from a family member who has lived there for years.
The Kresgers plan to move in with their daughter this fall, and the family plans to take the property for an annual renewal.
