Marker Text This house was completed in 1870 for prominent Brenham banker, lawyer, and landowner Jabez Giddings (1814-1878) (for whom Giddings, Texas, is named) and his wife Ann (1822-1902). It was later owned by their daughter, Mary Louise, and her husband, Heber Stone, the son of Galveston Mayor Dewitt Stone. It is a late example of the Greek revival style and features a center passage plan and a five-bay, two-story porch with Doric columns. Late 19th-century modifications include metal balusters on the second floor, a side porch with smaller columns, and servants wing at the rear.
