Notes
Survey number HABS TX-3355
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N98).
Significance: The first (or 1886) phase of the McLane-Hafner house is architecturally significant as an example of a vernacular stylistic type typical in the region, a one-and-one-half-story stone structure of the I-house type configuration with steeply-pitched rooflets over the three half floor windows on the main facade. The stone was no doubt quarried on the site as was the case at a number of similar sites in the vicinity. It is important because of its climatic adaptation and site orientation, the use of local building stone, and its function as the nucleus for a large complex of outbuildings serving one of the oldest ranches in the area. It is culturally significant because of its associations with the early settling and ranching family of McLane. The expression of the house and the ranch outbuildings complex and their evolution under the later Hafner ownership in the second half of the twentieth century are equally important as a presentation of a working cattle and sheep ranch for a period of more than a century, continuing until the late 1980s.
