1. The Granbury House Marker
Inscription.  Martha Washington (Garrison) Stringfellow (1834-1914), a widow with three children, migrated to Hood County about 1871. To support her family, she operated a boarding house, known as "The Granbury House", at this location. In 1874 she married local builder Joseph W. Anderson (d. 1901), who probably erected this structure. Anderson was a stonemason and partner in a lumber mill. He constructed many of Granbury's homes, churches, and Victorian commercial buildings. Among the later tenants of this structure were hotels, saloons, cafes, and clothing stores.
 
Erected 1979 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 2242.)
