Marker Text The first portion of this Queen Anne house was built before 1889 as a one-story cottage. About 1894, during the ownership of William B. Lockhart (1860-1923), it was enlarged by raising the original section to the second floor and adding a new ground floor. A son-in-law of Walter Gresham, builder of the Bishop's Palace, Lockhart became a prominent justice of county and federal courts. The house was later owned by his son John W. Lockhart (1891-1971), also a noted judge. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1981
