Marker Text This early twentieth-century cottage was built for Angus Mezappa and Mary Jane (Wood) Urquhart. A native of Marion County, A. M. Urquhart (1875-1909) was the grandson of Allen Urquhart, one of the founders of Jefferson. This family residence, originally located at Broadway and Owen streets, exhibits Eastlake styling. Outstanding features include the wraparound porch with its balustrade and spindle frieze, and the jig-cut bargeboards. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1985
