LOCATION: 309 N. Boundary Street, Burnet.

William H. and Mary Russell built this Victorian residence in 1883-84. Russell, a veteran of the Civil War (1861-65), headed the Burnet School system about 15 years. Sold in 1895, the house had such tenants as J. W. Edgar, later State Commissioner of Education, and J. H. Gildart, one of the first Texas game wardens. Since 1922 the property has been owned and preserved by the family of Samuel A. and Pearl (Teagle) McFarland. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1978.
