Marker Text This house was built in the 1870s by Henry B. Mistrot or Bertrand Adoue. Mistrot was a partner in business with Adoue's brother Jacques. The two-story residence features characteristics of the Greek revival and Victorian styles. The French influence of the owners is reflected in the use of fleur-de-lis patterns in the woodwork. A prominent area businessman, Jacques Adoue bought the home in 1888 and it remained in the family until 1977. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1980
