Oran Roberts moved to Texas, served on the Supreme Court, was elected Governor of the State, and in the 1870s founded Prarie View State Normal College, Sam Houston State Normal College, and the University of Texas. Justice George Stone, Senator John Tyler Morgan, and others preceeded Dr. C. L. Salter, a Talldega physician, is owner of the house. Dr. Salter's 1938 modification resulted in the exteriror appearance today.
