The Handbook of Texas Online reports that Buda is located along I-35, a few miles south of Austin, in Hays Co. The town was established in 1881 with the donation of land to the Great Northern Railroad by Cornelia Trimble.
This sketch of the Moore-Coffey home was created by Kent McMillian and appeared in an article by Barbara Younts in the Hays County Free Press in Nov., 1994.
The article describes the house as being built by Buda merchant, G. A. Moore in about 1926. He later sold it to the Carl Coffey family.
