Marker Text A good example of an evolutionary structure, this home was probably half its current size when it was built in the late 19th century for members of the Forres family. It was occupied by Otto and Laura Forres when a 1920s fire in a neighboring saloon spread to the south wall of the house, requiring replacement of siding and windows. The Forres' daughter, Minna Spacek, inherited the German vernacular home in 1933, and it remained in the family until 1978. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1983
