Joseph and Ruth (Huffman) Baines, maternal grandparents of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, built their home here in 1904, following Joseph’s service in the Civil War and a career as a journalist, Texas Secretary of State, Legislator and attorney. The couple used prefabricated cement blocks, made locally by Hugo and Henry Basse, also known as Basse blocks on the exterior of the home. The widowed Ruth sold the home in 1907, the same year daughter Rebekah wed Sam Johnson.
Located just four blocks from Main Street main shopping area and festivals Baine’s House Bed and Breakfast offers three stories with two comfortable suites.
