Marker Text A native of Bastrop, Joseph R. Pfeiffer (1876 - 1944) erected many homes and buildings in the town. He built this turn-of-the-century residence for his bride Freda (d. 1960) in 1901. Hoping to display his skill as a builder and attract future business, he made the house a showcase of fine materials and craftsmanship. Pfeiffer, who operated a lumber company and mill, later enlarged the dwelling to accommodate his family of six children. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1978
