Built for William Arthur "Bay" Evans (1900-1954) and his wife Garnet, the residence features elements of the Renaissance Revival style. A leader in Conroe during the city's oil boom period, Evans operated the Humble Oil Co. Bulk Station and was a director of the First National Bank. He also served as a city councilman and Chamber of Commerce president. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1984
