Architecture & History:

The original part of the house is the two-room limestone structure with fireplaces on both gable ends facing Poker Alley to the south. The floor joists are made from large whole logs. One of the early owners of the house, and possibly its builder, was blacksmith John Rowland. Rowland was listed as the Round Rock postmaster in 1867, and there is a legend that the house served as the post office, perhaps the office building was rebuilt. Some longtime residents of the area remember a blacksmith’s shop on the property, which Rowland kept when he sold the house.

Its longest residents, Victor and Lena Sellstrom, bought the house in 1926 and raised 8 of their 11 children there. Like most houses of the time it had a number of outbuildings, including a smoke house and wash house, which are now gone. The Sellstroms added the porch with a sleeping section on the south side and a wood-frame kitchen/dining wing to the north. This section burned down in 1934, and the Sellstroms added indoor plumbing when it was rebuilt. Part of the pine floor in the original section of the house is still slightly charred. The large, two-story section to the north was added by in 1971 by Harriet Rutland, who also enclosed the south porch.
