Marker Text Born in 1881, Lillie Josephine Wagner married John Richard Dobie Jr. in 1901. They bought this land in 1911 and ran a dairy. He built the cottage and garage in 1920 after the original house burned. Lillie delivered milk to the community in a Model A Ford. With John’s death in 1949 and Lillie’s in 1971, her nephew sold the home. The two-bedroom residence became a commercial property after 2002. Exterior features reflect craftsman styling in its pyramidal roof and exposed rafter ends. Interior detailing includes original floors, ceilings, beadboard walls, doors and sash windows. This landmark now serves as the village store boutique which is devoted to maintaining this historic property. RECORDED TEXAS HISTORIC LANDMARK – 2016
