Marker Text F. A. Brown Farm Home Situated on the Peters Colony headright granted to Calvin G. Cole in 1854, this frame Victorian farmhouse was built before 1885, when Francis Asbury Brown (1836 - 1922) purchased it along with 200 acres of farmland. His son Ernest (1868 - 1943) later occupied the residence and operated a dairy farm. Preserved by Ernest Brown's daughter and son-in-law, Anna and William T. Baker, this structure survived the urban growth that absorbed many rural homes around Dallas. RTHL 1976
