About Webster Apartments

Webster Apartments is a building that is rich in Austin's history. Webster has been a presence in Austin, MN since 1892, first being called “East of the Tracks School. Then in 1895 being renamed Webster School, rebuilt in 1914, added onto in 1937, closed as a school in 1973, and finally 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 remarkably similar to how Webster Apartments looked in 1937.

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 for residency at Webster was Apartment #5. The resident that occupied that first apartment lived in the unit for 17 years. The resident would call prior to the building opening, saying that they wanted to live there and had their unit all picked out. It was our pleasure having had that resident stay with us and have crossed paths with many wonderful people throughout the years.

You now have the opportunity to experience this architecture and rich history firsthand by becoming a resident at Webster Apartments. When you want something that is unique and out of the ordinary, where your apartment is as unique as you are, then you will find it at Webster Apartments.

We look forward to having you as our resident. Welcome Home!
