Marker Text Built by Paris and Mary (Harris) Broadstreet soon after they came from Mississippi (1861), settling 5 miles southeast of here. A son, Samuel (1864-1934), graduated from the Louisville (Ky.) Medical School in 1888 and practiced for two years in this house before opening a larger office in town. For nearly half a century, Dr. Broadstreet was a prominent Titus County physician. The house was moved and restored in 1971 by Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Mullins. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1972
