Lampasas in Lampasas County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Frank R. Malone came to Lampasas in the early 1880s as the city became a commercial center and resort town. In 1885, as a cashier for First National Bank, he proposed and helped found the Texas Bankers Association, which held its first meeting that year in Lampasas. Around that time, he and his wife Ann built this home. In 1888, the Malones sold the property to Wm. Ginnuth and moved to Dallas. Local businessman and civic leader John N. Manuel purchased the home in 1891. The Manuel family owned the property until 1972. The house's Queen Anne features are unusual and include an octagonal tower with projecting wings as well as crestline detailing, dentils and hood moldings.
