Marker Text In 1856 or 1857 C. S. Sabine built this Greek revival house with its large central hallway. In 1858 the residence was sold to District Judge William S. Todd (1808-1864), who attended the Secession convention of 1861. The dwelling was occupied from 1869 to 1912 by the family of Dr. Archibald A. Terhune (1825-1891), popular local physician. He added a small room on the east side of the house for his office. His wife Mary Frances (Ware) (1831-1904) was a noted gardener. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1978
