Dallas in Dallas County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Brothers and merchants William B. and Walter Caruth purchased land here in 1852. In 1872, William and his wife Mattie (Worthington) built this house, which stayed in the family until 2000. Mattie designed a Victorian-style home after the grand plantation homes of her Mississippi childhood. A 1938 renovation created a Neoclassical design, with removal of a wraparound porch, addition of a sleeping porch and sunroom, and relocation of the kitchen/dining wing. The two-story side-gabled home features a full-facade porch with fluted ionic columns and significant original features, such as frame siding, deep-bracketed gable eaves and window crowns.
