Marker Text Two original rooms built 1877 of rubblestone hauled to site by ox wagons. Purchased 1886 by Texas pioneers L. B. and Alice Beeman Russell, who added rooms as children grew older. Home is still occupied by descendants. Mr. Russell, who survived until 1940, was lawyer, judge, mayor, editor, historian, genealogist, linguist, poet, fiddler, Bible student and a Mason--in his late years known as "The Grand Old Philosopher of Comanche."
