One of the most prominent leaders of the Texas woman suffrage movement of the early 20th century, Jane Y. McCallum lived in this house with her husband, Arthur N., and five children. As a member of the Texas Joint Legislative Council (nicknamed "The Petticoat Lobby"), she worked for political and social reform through the Texas Legislature. Appointed Secretary of State by Gov. Dan Moody in 1927, she was reappointed by Gov. Ross Sterling in 1931. During her term of office she discovered and had preserved an original signed copy of the Texas Declaration of Independence.
