Corretions/New Research:

Marker Text: John W. Garrow (1879-1944), a successful cotton broker, had this house built in 1913 for his family. Designed by Houston architect Birdsall P. Briscoe, this was the seventh house built in the exclusive Courtlandt Place neighborhood. The house is an excellent example of Italian renaissance influence, a style popular in the United States between 1890 and 1935. Garrow family members lived in the house until 1944.
