Marker Text This Colonial Revival residence was constructed in 1904-05 by R. B. Rogers (d. 1935), a prominent local merchant and an active church and civic leader. The elaborate styling of the home features a distinctive two-story balconied portico with massive Ionic columns. The third floor area originally served as a ballroom. Owned by members of the Rogers family until 1957, the house serves as a reminder of Brownwood's prosperity at the turn of the century. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1982
