Inscription.  Built in 1874, and used as an office building, this structure was moved here in 1879 from Fort Griffin. Owner Edgar Rye was a newspaper publisher, cartoonist, and held numerous elective offices. Rye sold the building in 1896 to Anna F. Caperton, who modified its appearance in 1902-06, and used it as a home. Sold again in 1906, it was converted to apartments in the 1940s, and was restored as a single-family dwelling in the 1990s.
