Originally built in 1832 by Samuel Rhoads Fisher, the First Secretary of the Republic of Texas Navy and a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, the Stanley-Fisher House is registered as a Texas Historic Landmark and also likely accommodated Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston. Fully-restored to its original, true form, the Stanley-Fisher House invites you to relax in the home, in your private bedroom, or on our screened-in porch, and enjoy a home-cooked breakfast each morning.
