Marker Text Spanish-American war veteran and Matagorda county judge (1908-1914) William Shields Holman and his wife Louise (Kaulbach) built this house in 1908-09. Designed by A.W. Large and constructed by contractor H. Speckles, the house is an excellent example of queen anne styling. It features asymmetrical composition, an elaborate roofscape, corner tower, wraparound porch, and varying textures on its wall surfaces. It remained in the Holman family until 1978.
