GilesbathAlfred Giles (1853–1920) was born in Middlesex, England and became an architect before emigrating and moving to San Antonio in 1875. When Giles designed the Ingenhuett Hotel in 1880, it was his third building project in the growing town of Comfort. He returned to design the second wing in 1894. Many of the private homes and public buildings designed by Giles are on the National Register of Historic Places and have been designated Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks. He is arguably most well known in Texas for his numerous designs of county courthouses and for the historic structures he designed in San Antonio.
