Foster Home

Grimes County, Texas
30 23.562' N 96 04.869' W
Directions: Start at the intersection of Washington Avenue and McNair Avenue. The house is on the northwest corner of the intersection.

Text: Mattie Brigance Foster, daughter of Grimes County settler Franklin Brigance, had this home built in 1900 shortly after the death of her husband. Incorporating elements of the colonial revival and shingle styles, the house is of cypress frame construction and features a multi-gabled roof. Its design is indicative of the movement away from the elaborate detailing of the Victorian era. The home remained in the Foster family for 60 years.
