Marker Text Glenn and Mary Gulledge Crain House Glenn Crain (1869-1949) moved to McGregor with his family prior to 1886, when his father was elected the city's first mayor. Crain began selling insurance and, in 1890, married Mary E. Gulledge (1868-1960). They hired Charles Walsh to build this home in 1892. The couple, active in the local Methodist church, raised their family here, and subsequent generations owned and occupied the home until 2000. The house was designed in the Shingle Style, rare in Texas. Features include a cross gable plan and a unique semi-circular belvedere on the front gable end. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 2002
