Marker Text Woodley family members first settled in Harrison County in the 1840s. Here they farmed the land and served in local government. William Lawrence Woodley built his home at this site in 1873, soon after he acquired the land from his father. The one-story farmhouse was enlarged in 1910 when he died and son Jessie Lawrence Woodley inherited the homestead. The house now features a six-bay porch, squared columns, and a center-gabled roof. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1988
