Travel Tips for Montgomery
#7 Social Circle - 1908
According to the Historic Homes brochure, the building at 702 Caroline was built in 1908 by W. C. Whitehead. The location on the map is the corner of Caroline and Pond, right opposite the Old Baptist Church. Whitehead came to the Montgomery area of Texas to develop a town called Social Circle after Whitehead's home town of Social Circle Georgia. The structure is post-Victorian featuring a porch cupola and remains virtually unchanged in outward appearance from when it was built in 1908.
#13 - #14 Prairie House & Liberty Building
When we got to the end of College Street, I took a picture of the house at 902 College (#12) on the north side of the street. There were supposed to be two houses here - one at 905 and one at 907 College. But he last house on that side of the street had an 800 block number.
Looking at the map, I felt that I should have been able to see the 905 address, but I could not unless it is the little building in the second picture which is beside the 800 block house. The lion in the Intro was where I thought the house should be. The 907 address was off in the middle and I wasn't sure (because they were too far away for me to see if they had an address on them) which one of them might have been the Liberty Building.
The brochure says:
!3. THE PRAIRIE HOUSE, 905 College. Built in the early 1900s as a one room board and batton house in Richards, other rooms added over the years. Bleu and Dickey Beathard bought the house from the Podraza family in 1991, moved it to Montgomery and restored it. Now home of Paulette and Jerry Kullos
14. LIBERTY BUILDING, 907 College (Circa 1907) Originally built on Liberty Street, it has housed a post office, cafe, and barbershop through the years. It was moved to the current location and restored by the Beathards in 1992. Now owned by Paulette and Jerry Kullos
#20 Waters-Stewart-Miller - 1893
This Victorian gingerbread cottage at 415 Houston was built in 1893 for Dr. Henry and Cherrie Dean Waters. It was inherited by their daughter (the brochure says it was 'heired') Lockett (Mrs. W. B.) Wood. The Wood family lived here until the 1970s, when it was sold to the Welborns, Stewarts and is now home of Dan and Sharon Miller.
#28 Homewood - 1887
The Historic Marker for this house says
"Homewood". Built 1887 by merchant, landowner, farmer Wm. Baker Wood (1835-1941) and wife, Amelia Davis (1859-1943).
Choice heart pine, shiplap siding, square nails, board and batten kitchen at first was detached. Cypress-lined underground cistern.
Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-1965
The tour brochure adds that it is a typical modified Victorian mansion, unchanged except for attaching the kitchen wing. The Wood's maiden daughter Valda inherited the house and lived there until her death in 1999 at the age of 102. It is now the home of great-great-grandaughter Debbie and her husband Karl Brosch.
