Marker Text Tennessee native T. J. Caldwell (1812-1892) and his wife Letitia (1824-1877) built this house in 1860. The surrounding land provided limestone for the walls and cedars for the foundation, rafters, and floor joists. Caldwell's slaves helped build the house. The Caldwells' daughter, Mary, married Sven William Palm, and the couple bought the property from the Caldwell estate in 1892; the house stayed in the family more than 100 years. The two-story, five-bay, rough-cut limestone house features a center passage floor plan and a two-story wooden gallery. The surrounding Caldwell Heights community included a school, cotton gin, and this and other rural homes. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1967
