Marker Text Jo Abbott and his wife, Rowena Sturgis Abbott, bought this property in 1883 and later built the house next door (west). Abbott was a county and district judge, congressman, and local banker. In 1899 this house (originally a T-plan) was on the property when it was conveyed to their banker son, James, and his wife, Nancy, at the birth of their first child. Additions in 1907, when they sold the house, and in 1918 resulted in the transitional classical-bungalow styling. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-1986
