Marker Text C. R. Kelley and his wife Jennie (Cary) and their family moved to Texas in 1905. A cement artisan, Kelley was hired to build the Alexander Institute (Lon Morris College) and several churches in Jacksonville. Built in 1910, this house reflects elements of the Victorian era. Once the centerpiece of the South Side Heights Addition, it is the only remaining residence from that project. It remained in the Kelley family until 1922.
