Boyhood home of L. S. "Sul" Ross (1838-1898), Texas
Governor from 1887 to 1891. His father Shapley P.
Ross,  Indian agent and Ranger, built house after
moving here about 1841; he chose this site because it
had a good  spring. L. S. Ross, who was a Confederate
general, served as president of Texas A.&M. College
after holding  office as governor.
In 1890 this pavilion was erected to accommodate band
concerts, meetings and rallies. It  was the scene in
1892 of a landmark debate between two gubernatorial
candidates: Gov. James S. Hogg and  George Clark.
Erected 1969
