The McNamara House was built in 1876 in the style known as Greek Revival with Victorian accents. The house was built for Mr. William J. McNamara, a local hide and cotton dealer, and his wife Mary Ann Buckley McNamara and their four daughters: Mary Ellen, Elizabeth, Margaret and Catherine. William McNamara emigrated from Ireland in the 1850’s to New York City, then on to Pennsylvania, Port Lavaca, and finally settled in Victoria.
