    One of the homes in the early Union Hill settlement, this Greek revival residence was built about 1860 for Dr. William Henry Gantt (d. 1867), a physician and scientist who later taught at Galveston Medical College. The second owner, 1865-1890, was Henry B. (Jo-He) Jones, the inventor of a multi-purpose medicinal ointment. The family of Louis Prenzler lived here from 1908 to 1973. The structure was then purchased and restored by Mr. and Mrs. George L. Temple.
