The Wiley-Smith-Quilliam Home

The Wiley-Smith-Quilliam home at 2901 19th St. is in the Georgian Revival style and was built in 1951 for H.W. Wiley by Harold Biffle. The Kenneth Leftwich family lived in the home from 1953 to 1973.

Texas Gov. Preston Smith and his wife, Ima, acquired the home in 1973. Smith served as governor from 1969 to 1973. He also served in both houses of the state Legislature and as lieutenant governor.

Reed and Myrna Quilliam purchased the home in 1978. Quilliam was an attorney, state representative and longtime professor at Texas Tech's School of Law.
