This home was originally built in 1846 by General Jerome B. Robertson, who was one of the most famous people to live in early Independence. General Robertson came to Texas in 1836 to join the fight for Texas independence. He first settled at Washington-on-the-Brazos and later relocated to Independence, where he built this home directly across from the then newly founded Baylor University. The house was originally constructed closer to the bend in the road, but was re-positioned prior to its renovation in 2004. During this meticulous restoration process no detail was left unnoticed: Every fireplace stone was numbered and re-assembled in its exact location; Artifacts found under the home were collected and preserved; Even the new back porch was constructed with re-claimed lumber.
The home sits on 1.825 acres and now contains two bedrooms each with a fireplace and full bath, large living room with fireplace, kitchen, office, and dog trot/entry that is the ideal setting for a dining table. Even though you feel as if you have stepped back in time, the home secretly offers our modern conveniences we have become accustomed to. The refrigerator is enclosed in wood, the dishwasher hides behind a cabinet door, and an indoor wash room has washer/dryer connections. There is even central heat and air vented discretely through the floor.
This fascinating piece of Texas history is located across from Baylor Park on Windmill Hill, a six acre park dedicated by Baylor University. It is conveniently located 80+/- miles from Houston and 20+/- miles from College Station. This is truly a rare opportunity to own a stunning preservation of a time long ago.
From Brenham, take Hwy 105 toward Navasota. Turn left onto FM 50 and continue to Lueckemeyer Road on the right. Home will be on the left.
