Fort Bend Museum and Moore Home

When we went to Rosenburg, we passed through Richmond and saw the Fort Bend Museum. We went back and made a day out of it, starting at the Sandy McGees and continuing the search for the best cheeseburger.

The John M. and Lottie D. Moore House is at 406 S. Fifth Street, in RichmondFort Bend County.

John and Lottie House

The home was built by John M. Moore (1862–1940) and his wife Lottie Dyer Moore (1865–1924) in 1883, the year they married. John Moore became Secretary of State of Texas in 1886, later serving in both the Texas House of Representatives and the United States House of Representatives. Lottie’s father J. Foster Dyer, who died a year before the wedding, was a wealthy rancher in Fort Bend County.

The museum is on the grounds with the house.
