Marker Text Built around 1885 for William and Anna Cannon, this farmhouse was purchased in 1907 by Joe Brown Stanton (1861-1940). A native of Houston County, Stanton was active in civic, fraternal, and religious organizations. The area surrounding the house originally contained additional structures, including a large barn, smokehouse, well, and cistern. The house is a fine example of the once-typical vernacular farmhouses of 19th-century East Texas.
