Marker Text Z. Taylor and Sara Brown moved their family to Midland in 1884. A rancher and merchant, Brown had this house built in 1899. Featuring carved wood details, an art glass window, and three fireplaces connected to a single chimney, the house is believed to be the oldest dwelling in Midland. Following the deaths of Sara Brown in 1922 and Z. Taylor in 1930, the house was inherited by their daughter Sara Brown Dorsey. It remained in the family until 1969. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1965
