Marker Text Galveston native and banker William John Frederich, Sr. (1852-1898), had this house built for his family in 1894. After his death, his widow Jeanne sold the home to his nephew, Frederich William Erhard, in 1909. The home remained in the Erhard family until 1972. Built in a typical raised cottage form, the Queen Anne house features elaborate detailing in its porch balustrade, panelled frieze, and sunburst motifs in the gable ends and brackets.
