Marker Text Joseph Webb (1850-1933) had this residence constructed for his family about 1906. Known as Don "Pepe", Webb served as clerk of Cameron County for 34 years. In 1929 he conveyed the house to a daughter, Josephine Webb, a Brownsville teacher for whom a local school was later named. Continuous ownership of the home by Webb's descendants has been maintained by the family of his daughter Maria and her husband Jose Martinez. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1981
