Marker Text:
Edward A. Newsome, a financier, land owner and philanthropist, built this home in 1895 for his wife, Laura Fitzhugh, and their family. In 1966, the home was purchased by the Murphy family. The grand, two-and-a-half story Victorian home was the scene of many social activities in McKinney. The interior of the house boasts large rooms, high ceilings, ornate woodwork and a majestic stair landing. Window panes of cocoa glass, or solar glass, are displayed along the main staircase. The house changed hands over the years but remains a distinctive architectural gem in North Texas. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 2013 Marker is Property of the State of Texas
