1. Pritchett House Marker
Inscription.  Missouri native Joseph Lucien Pritchett (1858-1936) and his wife, Lenora Melissa (Evans), moved to Huntsville in 1888, when he was appointed to the faculty of Sam Houston Normal Institute as a professor of mathematics. After acquiring some property in the area, they built this house in 1892 and named it "Oak Grove”. Folk Victorian in form, the house features Queen Anne spindlework in the porch brackets and along the eaves of the front gable dormer. The Pritchetts expanded the house as their family grew, ultimately to include six children. "Oak Grove" remained in the Pritchett family until 1945.
