In 1884, Mrs. Barbara Lenz (Lentz) Jacobs (1831-1908), the widow of Christopher Jacobs, purchased a small cottage on this lot from Ferdinand and Caroline Möller (Miller). In 1885, Mrs. Jacobs, a prominent midwife, built a new, two-story house designed by well-known Texas architect, Nicholas J. Clayton, for her family of six children. The home is a three-bay, double-gallery, side-hall plan with unusually pierced eaves, designed with particular attention to the Galveston climate. This Victorian-style town home was occupied for 84 years by three generations of the Jacobs family.
