Marker Text Dr. William Taylor Hoard (1873-1945) moved to McKinney in 1898. A dentist and civic leader, he built this house in 1907. Exhibiting elements of the prairie school, colonial revival, and American foursquare styles of architecture, the home features a sullivanesque frieze under the eaves, fluted Corinthian columns, fish scale and regular shingled bands, and stained glass transoms. The home remained in the Hoard Family until 1971. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1987 Incise on base: Restored by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph C. Picken
