Veteran Travis County official and historian Frank Brown (1833-1913) erected this structure in 1886. Southwestern Telegraph & Telephone Company bought and restyled the building in 1898. Architect A.O. Watson designed the ornate fa?ade. Previously in rented quarters at various sites, S.T.&T. occupied this as the city's first telephone building. The John L. Martin family owned the structure from 1922 to 1976.
