Marker Text Completed in 1915 for Thomas (d. 1935) and Annie James, this home was purchased four years later by Kanetaro Fujita. Fujita served as president of a Japanese cotton exporting firm, the Gosho Company, incorporated in 1917 and dissolved just after the U.S. entry into World War II. In 1936, after Fujita returned to Japan, he sold the home to the company. Prominent features of the James-Fujita house include its gambrel roof and front porch columns and balusters. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-1986.
