Marker Text Hunter T. and Mary A. Farrell built this Victorian home in 1891. It typified the substantial houses of the late 19th century in this agricultural community. In 1934 Mrs. Farrell gave her daughter Ammie Wilson (1880-1972) a life tenancy in the property. With the support of her husband, Dudley Wilson, "Miss Ammie" raised prize-winning Hampshire sheep. Besides her trophies, she brought wide renown to the city of Plano. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1978
