Marker Text Daniel Webster Howell (1855-1930), a carpenter and contractor, built this two-story galleried residence in 1900-03 for his wife Amanda (Sellers) (1857-1924) and their ten children. In 1918 they sold the house to Milam L. Linscomb, a local barber, and his wife Sletia. They resided here with their two children until 1927. Representative of the early days of Orange's growth as a lumber center, the ornate Victorian home features intricate gingerbread detailing. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1981
