Marker Text John Madison "Matt" and Rebecca Wells Smith built this Queen Anne cottage circa 1902. Matt (1858-1936) moved to Burnet County, Texas as a young boy, and in 1891, he wed Rebecca (d. 1945). He served as a deputy sheriff before the couple moved to Lampasas in 1896. Here, they operated the Lampasas Hotel, a restaurant and saloon. Matt continued to work as a deputy sheriff and also as a deputy U.S. Marshal, and Rebecca was active socially and served on the Oak Hill Cemetery committee. Design features on the house include scrolled brackets and a hipped roof with cross gables. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 2006
