Marker Text Sam G. (1863 - 1941) and Estella (1865 - 1944) Henslee had this residence constructed for their family in 1907. As an early Rosebud businessman and city council member, Henslee was a leader in the development of the town. The modified Victorian home, which remained in the Henslee family until 1944, exhibits elements of the shingle style of architecture. Prominent features include the porch with Doric columns and the diamond patterns in the shingled gable. RTHL - 1985
