Eastlake Victorian on Marvin Avenue

This George F. Barber mail order house is located on Marvin Avenue in Waxahachie, TX. Having appeared in many magazines, etc., it has been called, "The Most Photographed House in America." The house is recognized both by the Texas Historical Commission and the National Register of Historic Places.


One interesting note is that the house has a twin that was built on HWY 77, north of Waxahachie, in the town of Sterrett, TX. However, in the 1920s, the house was "remodled" in the craftsman style, which was popular during the time. Now the twin house looks very little like this house.
