Marker Text Merchant, rancher, and banker J. H. Cage bought this property in 1876 and moved his family into an existing house. After his death in 1912, his children had the house moved and in 1913 built this home for their mother, Janie. Designed by the Fort Worth architectural firm of Sanguinet & Staats, the Cage home exhibits Colonial Revival styling with Prairie School influences and features beveled glass, two-story brick piers, and one-story octagonal columns.
