Influenced by the prairie
school of architecture in its form and its large, overhanging eaves, this
home was built in 1905 for the family of Walter and Pearl Barron. A local
merchant and banker, Barron sold the house in 1920 to hardware merchant
R. Lee Veazey, in whose family it remained until 1965. Classical details
such as the
Van Alstyne, Grayson Co., Texas
wraparound porch, fluted Corinthian columns, and Sullivanesque
frieze along the roofline are also significant.
