Marker Text A prominent rancher and banker, John C. Prude (1856-1924) came to Mitchell County before the turn of the century. In 1907 he hired J.E. (Gene) Pond to construct this spacious brick house. The wide overhangs and other horizontal lines demonstrate the influence of Prairie Style architecture popular at the time. Owned by members of the Prude Family until 1977, this residence was the scene of numerous social events. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1979.
