Twelve Oaks

THIS IS A STOP ON THE SALADO NATIONAL LANDMARKS TOUR – PLEASE RESPECT THE PROPERTY OF ANY PRIVATE BUSINESS OR RESIDENTS AT THIS LANDMARK.

Dr. D. B. McKie turned to native limestone when he built his ell-plan, Greek Revival residence on the east bank of Salado Creek. Stone mason “Whiskey Jack” Hendrickson used hand-tooled, roughhewn limestone blocks quarried from a site near the creek in the construction of the house. Nestled in a grove of oaks, whence the name Twelve Oaks, the house features a symmetrical, three-bay front with dressed limestone quoins, double-hung windows with six over-six lights, and a central, double-door entrance with transom and sidelights.
