Marker Text A native of Missouri, Augustus "Gus" Dennard (d. 1933) came to Texas with his parents in 1883. A leader in the Concord community, Dennard was a merchant, farmer, and blacksmith. He operated a forge on part of the land he purchased in 1901. A year later, he completed this home for his family. A good example of East Texas vernacular style architecture, the house features paired gables over the porch, which is supported by turned posts with decorative brackets.
