Marker Text Rudolph and Anna Duewall established a family farm here in the 1880s upon moving to Burleson County. Their son Edward (1885-1944) and his wife, Lizzie (Herrmann) (1890-1947), continued the farm operations. In 1928, they built this house on the site of the original Duewall House to accommodate their family of six children. Carpenter Otto Berndt used materials from the first farmhouse and from the second Burleson County Courthouse in the home's construction. The vernacular farmhouse features exposed rafters and a cross-gabled roof. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 2001
