Marker Text Kentucky native I. B. Nofsinger (1864 - 1938) came to Texas at the age of 20 and taught school before returning to his home state to study medicine. He was a doctor in McDade (8 mi. E) prior to moving his practice here. In 1906 he and his wife Mary (McWilliams) (d. 1934), a pharmacist, built this home, which remained in their family until 1978. Constructed of brick from a local kiln, it features Queen Anne detailing and a distinctive corner tower with a conical roof. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1982
