Marker Text Carpenter Henry Deubner built this house in 1866 and sold it to a local freight hauler, Ferdinand Miller. With its double gallery and side hall plan, the dwelling is typical of many in Galveston. Unusual pierced eaves improve the ventilation. Barbra Lenz (Mrs. C.) Jacobs (1831-1908) purchased the house in 1884. A widow with six children, she was a prominent midwife. Three generations of the Jacobs family occupied the structure for 84 years.
