Granbury is located 45 miles southwest of Fort Worth, and only 1 1/2 hours southwest of Dallas, and The Captain's House is located on Lake Granbury, just a short stroll from the Historic Square. The property was purchased in 1876 by James Hogan Doyle, a founding father of Granbury, who was also a decorated Civil War Hero. The early settlers affectionately nicknamed him "Captain". The original lower floor was built in the early 1880's, and the upper additions were completed by 1900.
