Albert Arnot House

-A A +A
1848. 306 W. Houston St.

This raised Greek Revival house is one of the oldest in Marshall. It was built for Arnot, who moved to Marshall from Mississippi in 1845 and established a successful blacksmith business on the property. The five-bay front porch is integral within the structure’s side-gabled roof in the manner of the Gulf Coast cottage type. The absence of decorative detailing emphasizes the house’s vernacular geometry. Changes to the house include the enclosure of the rear porch and the removal of chimneys.
