Historical Marker
    One of Center Point's oldest existing commercial structures, the Woolls Building was constructed in 1873-75 to house the mercantile business of George W. Woolls (d. 1876). Local contractor and stonemason Sam H. Wellborn built it of limestone with a full-width balcony and exterior staircase. For most of its history, the first floor of the Woolls Building housed retail businesses, with fraternal organizations meeting on the upper story. The Rising Star Masonic Lodge, which included a number of Texas Rangers among its membership, met here from 1875 until 1900. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 2001
