Inscription. This Victorian cottage was built in 1875 for architect Jacob Larmour (1822-1901), who came to Austin with his family in 1871. He played a major role in the design of many of the city’s commercial and residential buildings and was appointed state architect in 1879. Pharmacist Oscar G. Eckhardt bought the home in 1910, and it remained in his family for more than 50 years. Originally located at 1909 Whitis, the house was moved to this location in 1979.
