1. Warren-Futrell House Marker
Inscription.  Inspired by the Prairie School of architecture and the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century, this house was constructed in 1912 for Gilmer civic leaders Daisie Lee (Boren) and James R. Warren. In 1921, the Warrens sold the house to T. H. Glezen, who traded it to businessman Frank L. and Iona (Cotton) Futrell in 1934. Significant features of the house include its overhanging eaves with exposed rafter ends and short Ionic columns on the first-floor porch. A significant piece of Gilmer's architectural history, the house remained in the Futrell family until 1989.
