     This cabin of squared logs and hand-hewn limestone was built in the early 1850s near the village of Gabriel Mills (20 mi. NW). It stood on property owned in 1850-53 by Samuel Mather (1812-78), miller and blacksmith who first settled the area. The structure housed church, school, and Masonic lodge meetings before it became a dwelling. Given to Georgetown by Mr. and Mrs. Emile Jamail, it was restored in 1875 as a community effort to preserve local pioneer heritage. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1976
