T. A. Hasler House

The T. A. Hasler House is a Classical Revival style house located in Bastrop, Texas. The two-story house was renovated from a farm-house-style dwelling by Marie Hasler, after the death of her husband T. A. Hasler. The structure was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on December 22, 1978. The home was featured in the film Fireflies in the Garden (2008) starring Julia Roberts and Ryan Reynolds.

When Marie Hasler rebuilt the house, she used the finest materials including leaded windows from Switzerland, longleaf pine wainscoting and a tiger (or quarter-sawn) oak fireplace. The house featured two parlors, a wide central hallway and broad wrap-around front porch.
