Marker Text This residence was built for W. A. (1861 - 1907) and Minnie (White) Strain (1867 - 1957), whose pioneer family bought this property in 1846. Begun in 1895, the structure was completed in late 1896. Noted architect James E. Flanders of the Dallas firm of Flanders-Moad designed the frame Victorian house, with its ornate porch decoration and fishscale shingling. The Strain's son Ellis White (b. 1900) later occupied the home with his wife Ruth (Clark) (1902 - 1975) and their four daughters. RTHL 1977
