Marker Text Jesse H. Cartwright (1787-1849), a native of Mississippi, moved to this area in 1826. He built the original part of this home, a two-room log structure, on a 1000-acre tract in 1830. A planter and land developer, he also represented the area in the Republic of Texas Congress, 1836-1837. Following his death the plantation was sold. Joel McCrary, Jr. (d. 1910) bought the property in 1887. Several additions were made to the house during his ownership. RTHL - 1979
