According to the Texas Historic Landmark marker, it’s known as the John F. McGehee Home. McGehee was a Civil War vet who built it in 1889:

I’d love to see how this house looked when it was first built. I imagine all the woodwork was originally stained like this banister and that the rooms were a lot darker and more formal looking. I’m guessing some floral wallpaper patterns were involved, too!
