1906. 611 E. Jones St.
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead)

Jane Field Jones, widow of Nacogdoches-born Beeville cattle king and banker A. C. Jones, built this house when she moved to town after her husband's death. It looks like houses built to the designs of George F. Barber, the Knoxville-based pattern-book architect. The most distinctive feature of the two-story house is the conically roofed pavilion that projects off the southwest corner of the first-floor gallery.
