Mitchell-Stuart House – Avenue D

This large, two story brick bungalow has a projecting gabled front and side porch. The house has an unusual composition of three overlapping jerkinhead gables with exposed rafters, and a substantial side porte cochere. According to city directory records, Isaac H. Mitchell, an oil driller, lived in this house in 1921. Mitchell sold the house in 1925 to William and Harriet Stuart, both whom taught history and social sciences at Texas Women’s College (now Texas Wesleyan University). The Stuarts occupied the house until 1955.
