Marker Text This classical revival mansion was erected on the homestead of William McFaddin (1819-1897), who received land from the Republic of Texas for service at the 1836 Battle of San Jacinto. He later acquired more property and built a ranching empire. Architect Henry Conrad Mauer designed the house in 1906 for McFaddin's daughter, Di (Mrs. W. C.) Averill. Occupied (1907) by her brother, W. P. H. McFaddin (1856-1936), it is now owned by his daughter, Mamie (Mrs. Carroll E.) Ward. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1976
