William Larabee Callender House

The Callender House, a Greek Revival “raised cottage,” is reputed to be the first house in Tex­as built of pre-cut lumber. It was built in 1855 by Dr. Thomas R. Cocke. The house was pur­chased by the Callender family in 1870 and was owned by Callenders for over a century. Bertie Callender Stevens, a local music in­structor, and her husband, Lloyd M. Stevens, made several additions. NR-1979; RTHL-1962.
