Marker Text This house was built in 1892 by Charles M. Thompson and his wife, May Agatha Trammell, for May's mother, Martha (Mattie) Gibson Trammell, a certified teacher. In this building Mattie taught young men and women the rudiments of etiquette until 1910. It is an unusual architectural variant with a broad hipped roofscape interrupted by a large central hipped dormer. A kitchen, bath, bedroom, and porch were added by subsequent owners about 1912. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1992
