Marker Text Tinsmith and later volunteer fireman Ott Lackey and his wife, Vesta, lived in this house in the early 20th century. It is believed that Lackey's stepfather, David Martindale, built the house around 1905. In 1946, Andrew and Ileta Hudgins purchased the home. Anther Hudgins was employed by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, whose presence in the area led to Whitewright's 1878 establishment. The L-plan cross-gabled cottage features wood siding, turned columns, and pressed metal skirting. Today, the residence remains a historic home with ties to the early days of the Whitewright community. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 2010
