James A. Toliver (1844-1911), native Texan, Civil War veteran, and local political and civic leader, is said to have built this house about 1870 with the finest pine and cypress from his lumberyard. It was purchased in 1916 by Sallie Cone (1872-1966). Prominent features of the residence include its two story wraparound porch and decorative jig sawn wood work on the columns and railings. After Mrs. Cone's death, the home remained in the family until 1974.
