Marker Text In settlement started by Noah Smithwick, when he built water mill here in 1855. In 1861 he moved to California, but the mill continued in operation. A. M.

Lodge obtained upper story at death of Mr. Cox, by his will. F. P. Lewis gave lower story in 1952. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1967
