Marker Text: Featuring Neoclassical elements in its design, this house is noteworthy for its association with two of Houston's premier 20th-century residential architects. Hiram Salisbury, a popular architect for early homes in River Oaks, designed the original part of the house, which was completed in 1941. In need of additional space for their family, owners Thomas D. And Helen Sharp Anderson hired noted Texas architect John Staub to design an east-wing addition in 1950. Set within a formal landscape, the Anderson House features a two-story porch on the front fa├žade detailed with Ionic columns above and Doric columns on the ground level.
