Inscription.  

This house and its "twin" next door were built by sisters Mary Masterson Fain and Anna Belle Masterson Kritser. Designed by Walter Whitley of Dallas, the houses were built in 1930. Mary Fain was the youngest daughter of Robert and Ann Masterson, pioneer ranchers with oil and gas holdings. The house blends elements of Colonial Revival architecture and was meant to complement the adjoining house, and they were meant to be viewed as a whole.
