Marker Text The Edward Llewellyn (1886-1983) and Margaret Seewald (1896-2001) Roberts house was designed by Harold Walsh in 1949 under heavy input from the Roberts. A student of Georgia O’Keeffe while at Amarillo High School, Margaret went on to achieve national recognition as an etcher and sculptor. Built as a nod to Santa Fe, New Mexico, architecture, the home features an irregular ranch-style floor plan. Notable features of the home include Santa Fe motifs such as exposed beams and woodwork carved by Roberts herself. The southwestern theme is rounded out with stucco fireplaces and stone floors.
