905 South Elm Street may be tiny, but it’s loaded with history and charm. Now named Mrs. Hall’s Cottage, this was one of three side-by-side rental houses crafted by builder D. E. Davis for Mrs. Lee A. Hall in 1929.
The Box-Chafin House came into being in 1916 when Walter and Maggie Box contracted the Griffith Lumber Company to build their home, at 1002 Elm Street, for a mere $2,400.
1009 Elm Street was built in 1916 by the Griffith Lumber Company for Tom and Jennie Peaslee and their two children. It is now aptly called The Peaslee House.
Sitting proudly at 1702 S. Elm Street, you’ll find the R. D. McHenry House. This lovely two story Prairie-style home was built in 1914 by builder Mark Langford for Rupert & Lula McHenry at a cost of $3000.
The H. T. McCollum House, at 1703 S. Elm Street, is one of the few Tudor Revival style homes you’ll find in Georgetown. This charming bungalow was built in 1928 for H. T. and Leola McCollum.
Cocktail Party - Requires Separate Ticket
The oldest home on the tour is our bonus Cocktail Party home at 404 E 7th Street. This home, known as the E. M. Harris House, was built in 1884 by Eugene Harris and is a wonderful example of the type of house which was common in early Georgetown.
