Rufus A. Green House

  • 1501 Church St
  • Bastrop, TX 78602
In 1851, the lot on which this house is located was purchased from John D. Hogan for $300. Rufus A. Green, builder of the First National Bank, purchased the home in 1888. It was formerly a one-story cottage with high ceilings and floored throughout with wide cedar boards. The kitchen was in a separate structure. In 1910, W.B. Ransome, Rufus' son-in-law added the upper story and colonial front. W.B. was the president of First National Bank from 1930 to 1951.
