Marker Text In 1923, Marion and Willie Maybelle Friday purchased 112.5 acres including this site on which to build a home and pursue their love of farming. Mr. Friday was a civil engineer who built waterways and sewer systems in Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington and other small Texas cities. The Fridays sold the house in 1937 to the Cox family, who sold it in 1946 to the Young family. The Youngs owned the property for fifty years. An excellent example of a brick foursquare plan, the structure is a hybrid of strong prairie school and classical influences. Prairie school characteristics include the hipped roof, wraparound porch, overhanding eaves and porte cochere with balustrade above. Classical features include the porch columns and broken pediment front entryway. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1999
