Marker Text Texas & Pacific Railroad shop craftsmen built this residence of handpressed bricks in 1889 for William P. Hagerty (1844-1906), personal engineer of T. & P. President George J. Gould. Stenciled canvas ceilings decorate some rooms. Hagerty, who fled his native Ireland as a rebel, married Mollie Allbright (d. 1907) and had five children. The house was badly deteriorated in 1972 when it was purchased and restored by the families of Dr. James H. Harris and his son Dr. Rush C. Harris. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1977
