Spotted in the RGV: The Rabb House

By Eryn Reddell Wingert

The Rabb House dates back to the late 1890s when Frank Rabb utilized steamboats to haul materials from Louisiana to build the Victorian-style home for himself and his new bride, Lillian Stark. The cost: $15,000. The home sits within the Sabal Palm Sanctuary in southern Brownsville, surrounded by a biodiverse landscape with walking trails. The park is located at 8435 Sabal Palm Grove Rd. and is open every day, except Wednesday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit
