Marker Text Constructed during the 1850s, this residence displays the classical facade and central hallway that are typical of the greek revival style. Handmade bricks for the foundation and fireplaces were fired at a kiln on the property. The structure was first occupied by the family of Dr. Peterson T. Richardson (1809-1870s), a pioneer physician and farmer. The house was purchased in 1919 by W.R. Lowe and restored in 1973 by his grandson, Joe W. Lowe, Jr. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1976
