  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

The rear ell of this house was built before 1844 and the visible triple front-gabled Gothic Revival–Stick Style house now envelops it. The land was once part of a colonial grant to Arabella Harrington by the government of Coahuila y Tejas. The ornate tracery in the bargeboards dates to the 1875 construction.
