Marker Text Designed in the American four-square style with colonial revival detailing, this home was built for Clinton Virgil Fraley in 1896. A Confederate soldier captured and held in Union prisons during the Civil War, Fraley moved from his native Kentucky to Marshall in 1866. Here he served as deputy sheriff, tax collector, and constable. Railroad worker Wiley E. Garland bought this home in 1907 and, with his wife, operated it as a boardinghouse for over 50 years.
