Inscription.  J. T. Morehead built this dogtrot cabin near Grapevine in Tarrant County in 1854. Later two rooms and a loft were added and the logs covered with siding. In 1857 the property was sold to R. M. Gano (1830 - 1913), a doctor, minister, and Confederate general. It housed his family until after the Civil War (1861-65). They later settled in Dallas. The structure was again remodeled after Gano sold it. In 1974 it was restored and moved to this site.
 
Erected 1975 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 6719.)
