Joseph Redmond Rice (1805-1866) cut timber, then his young wife, Willie Masters Rice (1809-1881), snaked the logs to a homesite 16 miles southwest of here. The cabin they built was a noted way-station on the San Antonio Road. They brought up nine children, enlarging their cabin several times, after a grandson built a frame house in 1919, the old cabin became a farm storage shed. The Texas Centennial Commission in 1936 marked its history, and in 1973 it given to the State of Texas and moved here for restoration and exhibition.
