Long Description:
Per the website of the house's current tenants, the Grand Central Café:

"Grand Central Cafe is owned and operated by Rick Gregory and Drew Gerencer. The concept of the cafe came to both of them several years ago, and finally took the leap of faith and opened the restaurant in the Victorian era home located on the Antlers Inn grounds in Kingsland, TX."

A sign located near the restaurant -- and also posted online on the cafe's website -- states:

"The Victorian House at The Antlers Hotel -- Built around 1909, this Queen Anne Style cottage originally stood in Williamson County, now Round Rock, Texas. It was quite grand for its time with fish scale roofing and chamfered corners with gingerbread trim. Through its life, the Victorian house was home to a succession of families and students, and served as a movie set in 1973 for “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”. The house was purchased by The Antlers Hotel in 1998. It was then dismantled, moved to Kingsland and completely refurbished and is now home to Grand Central Cafe."
