Richards House – Galveston

The Richards House is a one-story wood-framed dwelling with a rectangular plan and flaring hipped roof. A full recessed porch is surmounted by an unusual attic dormer with a delicately proportioned Palladian window and denticulated pediment. Frederick Richards, a passenger conductor with the Texas & Pacific Railroad, resided at this address from c. 1900 through the early 1920s. The existing house is located in the district destroyed by the fire of April 1909, and probably was built soon after. The Richards House has been demolished.
