About Webster Apartments

Webster Apartments is a building that is rich in Austin's history. It has been a presence in Austin, MN since 1887, rebuilt in 1909, added onto in 1938, and transformed over the years mainly from 1986-1994 into a rich historic upscale apartment complex. Webster Apartments has preserved so much of the architectural style that the exterior appearance is very similar to how Webster Apartments looked in 1909.

Although Webster Apartments was originally slated to be demolished it was saved by one man and his vision to see things that others simply could not grasp. That man is Gary Groh and he has saved this historic structure so that the city of Austin and its present and future generations may enjoy this treasure of Austin, MN.

Webster Apartments presently is a 12 unit apartment building that was once an elementary school. The building was purchased in 1982 by Gary A. Groh and with the help of his family have turned it into what it is today. Although Austin has lost many of its historical and architectural buildings, Webster Apartments remains as one of the few that have withstood the test of time.

In 1994 the very first apartment to open up for residency at Webster was Apartment #5. The resident that occupied that first apartment still remains to this day.
