1. Randerson-Lundell Building Marker
Inscription. Cornelius Randerson erected a one-story structure here in 1896 to house a grocery, feed, and wagon yard. John and Claus Lundell purchased the building in 1898 and in 1910 a second floor was added to board customers overnight. It remained in the Lundell family until 1926. A good example of a native limestone and brick commercial building, it features simple Classical detailing. A number of businesses have occupied the building.
 
Erected 1994 by the Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 13859.)
