Family Photos: The House in Seymour – Part II

The House in Seymour
In 2001, I visited Seymour, Texas and found houses with similar roof lines and remnants of similar porches. Although I considered this house unique, I learned that the style was not unique at that time.  Looking at Latchstrings, A Cross-Section of Baylor County Homes published in 1986 by the Baylor County Historical Society, I saw even more houses of the same style.

According to the following articles found in the Baylor County Banner, my grandfather bought the land in 1917. About the same time, he purchased a home to be moved to his property from Mr. W. A. Bennett.

The home that he purchased could have very likely been the residence of W. A. Bennett seen below. The picture was found while transcribing old issues of the Baylor County Banner and appears to have been taken in 1906.
