About This 1892 Victorian In Gainesville Texas
Attention History Enthusiasts and Preservation Advocates! This exceptional Victorian home, built in 1892 by J.G. Garrett, is up for grabs. A chance to be the third owner outside the original family, this corner-lot property blends history and charm. Previous owners updated electrical, plumbing, roof, and more, while preserving its authenticity. Some of the original features include woodwork, indigenous shutters, stained glass windows, and wood floors.
Three of the four fireplaces are thought to be from the 1893 World’s Fair. Accessible by ladder, but room for a lift, is a converted attic to provide additional space. The property comes with approved plans for kitchen and bathroom renovations offering an exciting opportunity for the new owners to add their personal touch. A unique feature is the original Eldridge family hitching post. Located a short walk from downtown Gainesville, this home is regularly a part of the Morton Museum’s Historical Tour. Don’t miss this historical gem!
