The Anderson House, built in 1860 on eight acres, four of which still remain with the house. The home is in the Greek Revival style even though some of the design details and proportions are not typically those of the Greek Revival style as seen in Texas. James Anderson built the house for his wife Elizabeth and fourteen children. The first sale of the house was in 1864 for the sum of $2,000 Confederate notes. Adjacent to the house is a native limestone building also built in 1860. It has had many uses in the past including only saloon.
