1. John and Virginia Linney House Marker
Inscription. John Filmore Linney (1853-1924) and his wife Virginia (Lum) Linney (1854-1946), were both members of pioneer Texas families. His father, Col. John Linney had this house built for the couple in 1876, just two years after their marriage. John F. and Virginia Linney, who reared eight children in this house, continued to reside in it until their deaths. Relocated in 1948 from its original location in the southeast part of town to a lot on Oak Street, it was moved to this site in 1986. Now a part of the county museum, it serves as a reminder of early South Texas vernacular architecture.
 
Erected 1993 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 6484.)
