Built in 1898 for cotton merchant William Braxton Barr (1864-1902) and his wife, Matilda (Tilly) Birdwell (1868-1951), this home was designed by Austin architect Charles Page. Barr named the surrounding community after his grandfather Capt. Erasmus Sprinkle (1813-1906), with whom he built a cotton gin and general store. When cotton prices fell in 1920, the thriving town of Sprinkle began to decline. The home, which features ornate Eastlake styling, remained in the Barr family until 1980.
