    One of Irving's best known early builders, A. Fred Joffre, and his wife built this airplane bungalow in 1919 in the original Irving townsite. Their daughter sold the home in 1936. Pioneer doctor Franklin Monroe Gilbert and his wife Dorothy, a nurse, purchased it in 1939. For nearly thirty years, patients came here night and day as they knew help was available for examination, medication and emergency treatment. At least one baby was delivered here. The Gilberts had Perma Stone applied to the house between 1947 and 1949 while retaining the character and defining features of the bungalow, such as the unusual stacked porch posts. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1999
