was a memorable Valentine’s Day that year.  The
6200 square foot mansion was in need of some
TLC but it had plenty of bedrooms; and plenty of
bedrooms is just what this “Brady Bunch” needed
to accommodate their five children.  The
bedrooms are named after their children.  Gary is
from Victoria and Ursula was born in Bastrop and
grew up in Smithville, Texas.  Gary is an Attorney
and an engineer by training, with degrees from
Texas A&M and the University of Houston.  Ursula
has made a career out of renovating and restoring
historic homes.  She has completed projects on 25
properties since 1995.  Both she and Gary feel
that the Mansion is her crown jewel and hopefully
her last project.  The interior renovation lasted
five years and she still has plans to add a pool,
fountain, and iron fencing.

rsula and Gary Morris purchased their
Victorian Mansion on February 11, 2005.  It
As the children grew older and requests for Bed & Breakfast activities increased; they decided to open
their home on a full time basis.  They hope that other people who enjoy historic properties and appreciate
history will love the Mansion the way they do.  Their first guest commented on the initial tour that
everything looked as though it had been done with great love and attention to detail and quality.  That is
just the impression Ursula and Gary want to make.
