Set on what was a Dairy Farm, mvpofthempc is nestled with over 20 other specialty shops known as Artisans’ Alley.
The “Alley” is located in the corner of a farm once owned by the Tomasini Family. In the 1800’s Baron George Von Tomasini, an adventurer, left his wife and children in Austria and went to Mexico to seek his fortune. For a while he worked for General Maximillian as a professional soldier. He decided he liked the area and returned to Austria to bring his family back with him. Unfortunately, as his absence from home took much longer than he had planned, he found his wife having given him up for dead, had remarried.
The Baron then returned to Mexico, and headed north to what is now known as Texas and the area we call Hill Country Village and Hollywood Park. In 1878, he purchased 118 1/2 acres of land for $1.50 per acre, and developed a dairy farm. He remarried and began a new family, and continued to purchase more land and succeeded in acquiring 400 acres during his lifetime.
Future generations lived on his land. In fact, two of the original Tomasini houses are part of Artisans’ Alley The original main house serves as offices for one of the shops. The other house has become the front entrance and the first two shops in the Alley.
