Marker Text Samuel Hancock Smith (1842-1906) had this residence built soon after he became Hood County tax assessor in 1883. Most of the decorative trim probably was added during an 1892 expansion of the home. From 1920 until 1956, this was the residence of the Savage family. William (1864-1933) and Emma (1878-1956) were Granbury merchants. Prominent features of the Smith-Savage house include its Eastlake porch and Italianate style bay window. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1986 Incise on base: Marker secured by Alison, Claudia & David Southern, owners since 1980.
