     This Greek Revival residence was built in 1853 for Bartholomew Manlove (b. 1776), who was elected the first mayor of Bastrop two years later. In 1857, the property was sold to Margaret Chambers (d. 1897). Formerly married to Josiah Wilbarger (d. 1844), the well-known survivor of an 1833 Indian attack near Austin, she later wed Col. T. W. Chambers, a veteran of the Texas Revolution. Constructed of native wood, the home was deeded to her daugher Fenora in 1890. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1962
