K. D. and Callie Lawrence House

-A A +A
1899, George F. Barber. Noble St. at Raines St.

Barber published this house in his magazine American Homes 12 (February 1901) with a drawing titled “On a Texan Prairie” and again in Modern Dwellings 3, Design No. 44. Built for local druggist and banker Lawrence and his wife Callie, the one-and-a-half-story Queen Anne design has a squat octagonal corner tower with a ribbed convex dome. Turned porch posts, spindle rails and headers, and an unusual bracketed cornice under the dome are Eastlake and Italianate features of Barber’s eclectic style.
