Marker Text In 1887 work was begun on this structure by the Rev. Thomas Broad. Banker E. M. Reynolds acquired (1891) and enlarged the house. The architect, Richard E. Grosse, also did the ornate stonecutting and woodcarving. Property was sold (1919) to Oscar E. Seaquist, a Swedish immigrant, who finished the structure, still owned and occupied by his family. Exemplifying fine workmanship and materials, the house features a third-floor ballroom. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1974
