    Henry Klockman (1852-1897) and his wife bought this land in 1894 and built this home about 1895. Klockman operated a blacksmith shop until his death. His widow supported their son by taking in boarders. She sold the residence in 1910 to P. O. Elzner, Jr. After a fire in the spring of 1926, D. F. Holland purchased the property and the first remodeling was done. When Holland died, his widow rented part of the dwelling to young adults who became some of Bastrop's leading citizens. Her extensive diaries about life in the house are in the Bastrop County Museum. (1979) Incise in base: Restored by Dr. and Mrs. R. H. Carpenter, 1976
