Once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a REAL piece of Texas History. The 1848 home was built by David McFadin, a Texas war hero who fought under General Sam Houston in the Battle of San Jacinto for Texas Independence in 1836. McFadin was also one of the first settlers to come to Williamson County and the home is the oldest home in the county. Exterior and interior walls are 27" thick with 10ft ceilings, this house was designed to protect against the Indian attacks. The home has been totally remodeled from top to bottom including new wiring and new HVAC's. An active spring behind the home is where the confederate soldiers camped during the civil war and it is still flowing freely today. The McFadin Farm is 78.17 UNRESTRICTED acres, roughly 30 acres of cultivated land and 48 acres of native pasture with 2300' of FM 1331 road frontage.
