Wheeler House

Marker Text:


First classic revival house in area.  Has unusual stairway.  Built 1852-1854, with slave labor.  Fifth house on Bonham-Paris stagecoach road.  Chimney stones and lumber hand-hewn.  Joists were pegged rather than nailed.


​Sold in 1884 by Wiley Hulsey, builder, to Confederate veteran Peyton Wheeler and wife Martha Jane Hamil.  Their descendants have erected this marker.


Location:  Three miles west of Honey Grove on SH 56.  This building is sadly currently falling down.
