Marker Text Late Victorian structure, has fine glass and gingerbread trim. Built 1896 and lived in by first (1892-1898) Cottle County Sheriff, Joe L. Gober. At that time, many townspeople lived in dugouts. Building materials had to be hauled from railroad towns of Childress and Quanah. (Paducah acquired railway line in 1909). Gober sold home to W. M. Barron, who was County's third sheriff. Since, 1941, it has been owned by the J. H. Williford family. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, 1962
