The Maximilian B. Mayer House (41 BX 326) once stood' on the corner formed by King William Street, South Saint Mary's Street and Durango Boulevard (Fig. l). It was torn down about 1967, but its foundations and other subsurface structures still remain in the ground.

The recent acquisition and renovation by the San Antonio Conservation Society of the Anton Wulff House (at 107 King William Street) included landscaping and the planting of trees over the site of the Mayer House (at 101 King William Street). Since the land is part of the King William Historical District, this alteration of the earth necessitated a preliminary investigation by an archaeologist to determine what cultural resources might be affected and to mitigate the effects of this disturbance on any such cultural resources.
