Marker Text Kentucky native Ben T. Estes (1841-1920) came to Texas in 1856. After serving in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, he returned to McKinney where he was engaged in the mercantile business. Estes had this home constructed for his family in 1897. It features late Victorian styling with Eastlake influences. Prominent elements include its wraparound porch with decorative woodwork, the hip roof, and the corbeled brick chimney.**Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1984***
