1. Gilfillan House Marker
Inscription. This residence was constructed in 1905 for William L. Gilfillan (d.1932), one of the founders and directors of the Austin National Bank. Designed by the prominent Austin architect Charles H. Page, Jr., the two-story brick home reflects a mixture of popular pre-World War I architectural styles, including Mission Revival and the Prairie School. In 1931 the home was purchased by Julius G. Knape, a Swedish stonemason and contractor.
