Marker Text Albert Neyland (1854-1890), son of Orange pioneers, married Louisa Jett (1855-1914) in 1875 and built a small house at this site. In 1877 Alexander Gilmer (1829-1906) bought the property. Gilmer owned sawmills throughout Texas and real estate in Orange. This Victorian residence was built around the original structure. Gilmer deeded it to his daughter Martha when she married H. S. Filson. After the Filson occupancy ended, it became residential and rental property. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1979
