Inscription. This small one and one-half story log house on Cypress Creek in northwest Travis County could have been built as early as 1859. John M. King bought the property from John Robey in 1879 and indicated there was a dwelling on it at that time. King (1816-1918), a farmer from Alabama, and his family occupied the home until 1917. The log house later was purchased by legislative lobbyist Jack Dies (d. 1942), who entertained many Texas politicians here.
