Marker Text This is a rare example of a virtually complete 19th-century Cross Timbers farmstead. Thought to have been built in the early 1870s by James J. Wyatt, the Cumberland plan one-story rough limestone two room ranch house was altered in the 1890s by J. H. Boyd and modified in the 1930s and 1940s. Other structures in the ranch complex include a single-room masonry dugout, two stone barns, and a rock base for an elevated cistern. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1987 Incising on base: In honor of Naoma Caudle Frey Hickie, 1987
