Inscription. Rancher and banker Thomas Trammell (1848-1919) was called the "Father of Sweetwater." He hired noted California architect John Young to design this house. Trammell, who helped bring railroads to Sweetwater, knew of Young's design work for the Santa Fe Railway. Built in 1911-13, this house reflects the Mission Revival-Prairie School style of architecture and features a unique atrium. From 1923 to 1936 the house served as the only hospital in the area. Later Trammell's daughter and her family occupied the home.
