Marker Text Missouri native John Elias Herrington (1863-1926), and his wife, Ida May (Douglas) (1870-1951), built this Queen Anne house in 1902 in the Lone Star community. John raised wheat, corn and cotton on this Blackland Prairie farm and dealt in real estate. In 1894, he gave one acre of land to built the Lone Star School. In 1919, the Herringtons moved to Van Alstyne, where John was a banker. The home remained in the family until 1979; it features a wrapped porch, bracketed posts and hipped roof with shingled gables.
