Marker Text Square nails used on the first floor of this Queen Anne style residence suggest a construction date before the late 1880s. Originally a one-story structure, the second and third floors were added soon after 1900, when the home was purchased by Louis Alfred Scott (1852-1934), who became a successful McKinney businessman and active civic leader. Outstanding features of the home include its octagon tower, gingerbread detailing, and colonial revival porch. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1983
