McCamley-Hawes House

-A A +A
1896. 309 N. Resident St.

Located on the edge of rolling terrain alongside what was once the channel of Caney Creek, this is a striking but conservative house. It is a two-story, central-hall I-house with a double veranda, more like a house of the early 1870s than the late 1890s. One year after the house was built for Rosa F. McCamley it was bought by lawyer and former Wharton County judge Edwin Hawes and his wife, Lizzie Rust.
