Travis College Hill Neighborhood Houses

-A A +A
c. 1895–1916. 300–400 blocks of S. 11th St.

This two-block addition of S. 11th Street was platted in 1913 in anticipation of an electric railway that was to run along Avenue D between Greenville and Dallas. The train project faltered, but the street attracted generations of Garland’s business and civic leaders. Four significant houses are variations of Craftsman bungalows. These are the Andrew Jackson Beaver House (1915); the James E. and Edith McCallum Beaver House (1916); the Dixie Tucker and Curtis Crossman Sr. House (1916); and the G. Lester and Mattie Cole Davis House (1916) at 301, 313, 400, and 411 S. 11th Street, respectively. Wide front porches on substantial piers, low-sloped roofs with exposed rafter tails, and large dormers or half-stories are features of these houses. The John and Nina Pace House (c. 1895; 317 S. 11th) is an austere Queen Anne cottage.
