Marker Text Sonora's fifth structure; built as home of Isaac Miers (1835-1891), Civil War veteran who married, in Bell County (1867), Victoria Morton (1841-1913), granddaughter of John Morton, a signer of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. About 1880, Miers moved west by covered wagon. He owned land and ranched in Edwards, Kimble, and Sutton counties. Hauling the lumber from San Angelo, he built this board-and-batten cottage in 1888. It now is a museum. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark--1970
