he used scraps from a hurricane damage and from wrecked boats. he done the wood work with a foot operated scroll saw. each side of the house has a different style of wood work. he worked on it from 1901 to 1910.
the house was sold to a family and the lady donated the home to the city of Alvin, TX

I hope this lovely remembrance of the past stays in the family. This home is hopefully on the National Registry and protected from demolition. It is beautiful.
