Marker Text This Eastlake style cottage was constructed by Mrs. S. M. Howard (d. 1932) in 1897, one year after she purchased the property from her sister-in-law Mrs. E. C. Morse. The home's outstanding features include fishscale shingling, a wide veranda with intricate gingerbread ornamentation, and interior woodwork detailing. Representative of Calvert at the turn of the century, the house remained in the Howard family until the 1940s. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1982
