Jasper in Jasper County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Salesman J. T. Waggoner, Jr. (1860-1942) and his wife Sadie (Scarborough) (1870-1955) built this residence in 1927. It is closely associated with Mrs. Waggoner, a civic leader and longtime Jasper County school teacher affectionately known as "Miss Sadie." It was later owned by her brother, local businessman Philip Edgar Scarborough (1883-1965). The house reflects influences of colonial revival and bungalow styling and features fanlights, bracketed eaves, and elliptical arches.
