Marker Text This structure began as a dog-trot cabin erected before 1854 by John Lollar and later owned by pioneer Doctor J. C. Moore. It was sold in 1871 to John M. Patterson (1817-94) and acquired in 1880 by his son, John P. Patterson (1847-1911). In 1882 the second floor was added and the exterior decorated with Victorian detailing. The house was then the center of a large farm. Owned (1975) by Pearl Patterson, it has housed the Patterson family for over 100 years. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1975
