1. The Sheridan Apartments Marker
Inscription.  This three-story apartment building was constructed in 1922 to help ease a housing shortage in Houston. It was built and owned by Robert C. Duff, a prominent Texas railroad man and banker before the Great Depression. The building features bracketed eaves and a tile roof and exhibits influences of the arts and crafts and prairie school periods in architectural styling. The Sheridan is one of Houston's few remaining "flats" from the 1920s and 1930s.
