Marker Text Designed by local contractor J. D. Singleton and built for the widow of prominent Texas Ranger and rancher W. R. Curtis, the Alice Victoria Ghormley Curtis House was erected in 1906-1907. Mrs. Curtis (1869-1923) moved to Amarillo after her husband's death in 1901. She raised the youngest of her five children and a granddaughter in the house. An excellent example of an early 20th century classical revival dwelling, the home features Tuscan columns supporting a classical entablature. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1998
