The home features bull-nosed siding and a hip-and-gable roof with fish scale shingles. There is an octagonal turret on the northeast corner, and the home features a corbelled interior chimney. This superb time-capsule of Texas history is move-in ready and fully furnished for devotees of fine craftsmanship ready to add their pages to the well-read history of Texas' first city.
