Thomas House – Grand

Allen C. Thomas, a cattle salesman for the North Texas Livestock Commission Co., purchased in 1911 the house he had rented since 1907. An unusually stylish rendition of a type common along Grand Avenue, the rectangular plan, wood- frame house has a full front porch supported by squat Tuscan columns. A hipped roof with boxed eaves and decorative modillions is topped by a large, central hipped dormer window. This Belmont Terrace property has a commanding view toward the west and the Trinity River. It is a contributor to the proposed Grand Avenue National Register Historic District.
