About Owner/Property Manager

Dan and Margaret Gafford purchased the Krueger Mansion November 10, 2010. We have been happily married since December 1976. We are the owners of Battery Solutions Inc. and co-owners with our son Grant of Battery Joe retail stores.

Our three children Blake, Grant, and Megan currently reside in Lubbock.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Tech Terrace

Originally built by Dr. Krueger in 1937, it was the grandest home in West Texas. Dr and Mrs. Krueger lived in the servant's quarters while the main house was under construction. Dr. Krueger later became father-in-law to football Hall of Fame member Bobby Layne.

What makes this cottage unique

Conveniently located close to Texas Tech, the hospitals, and downtown Lubbock. A short walk to a wide selection of restaurants. If you have a child at Tech, odds are his/her dorm is directly across the street.

Great place with a good location. Clean and had everything we needed. Cozy and just the right size for a short stay. Would definitely stay there again. The owners even had a great bottle of wine to welcome us.

We loved having the fire place. It snowed while in Lubbock and the owners were nice and called to make sure we were warm enough and had all we needed. We even played with their dogs, which were very sweet. I would definitely stay here again.

In the eclectic Tech Terrace neighborhood directly across from Texas Tech, the rental unit was originally the servant's quarters for the historic Krueger Mansion. Still one of the most impressive homes in Lubbock.
