Corretions/New Research:

Marker Text: Noted Houston architect Alfred C. Finn designed this home for Sarah (Brashear) Jones, widow of State Senator James W. Jones. Finn melded the oak woodwork of the Jones’ 1893 home, including the windows, doors, wainscoting and grand staircase, into this Post-WW I house. The Tudor Revival styling features a wide central gable, a two-story off-center parapeted entrance portico, an arched opening supported by pilasters, and a porte cochere. Sarah, her daughter Irma and son-in-law William C. Hunt moved into the house in 1921; five generations of this family lived here until 1989.
