Marker Text Phillip Vogel, a German merchant, built this residence in the 1850s. It reflects the simple Greek revival style popular at the time. A. D. McNabb, owner of a saddlery shop, bought the property in 1887. He married Charlien Gloyd, daughter of temperance crusader Carry Nation, who operated a boarding house in Richmond in the 1880s. The McNabb family owned the house until 1972, when it was moved from its original location at 202 Jackson St. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1979
