    On first ranch in Hall County, started in 1880s by pioneer cattlemen T. S. Bugbee and O. H. Nelson. This residence was built about 1884. A nearsighted owner, J. K. Zimmerman of Kansas City, was wary of surprise visitors, and put in only one outer door. Adobe building bricks were made nearby. The tamped clay walls are 24 inches thick. At this headquarters, citizens met on May 4, 1890, and organized Hall County's local government. Recorded Texas Historic Lankmark-1962
