Long Description:
This historic home is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, and had previously served as a funeral home and later, The Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast. The mansion and its furnishings were auctioned off some years ago, and a padlock is on the front door, the future unclear. For now, these two small lions, mirror images of each other, with outside paws raised, will have to defend the grounds.

A Texas Historical Marker here provides some background:

This house was built in 1883 for the family of Ebenezer Wiley Johnson, a prominent local citizen. Originally built in the Second Empire architectural style, it was altered to a Classical Revival appearance after 1922 by Johnson's daughter and son-in-law, Frances Lillian and William Perry McCammon, to accommodate a funeral home. Still exhibiting Victorian-era design, the structure is notable for its giant order Doric columns and pediment features.
