Hamilton-Soules House

Mills County, Texas
31 28.192' N 98 19.031' W

Text: Thomas Edgar Hamilton (1878-1933) moved with his family to Mills County in the early 1890s. In 1898, he wed Nettie Ethaline Sargent (1879-1950), and the couple had four children. They made their home in Star, where he worked in a nearby family cotton gin and as a bookkeeper. He later became a banker and school board member, and was active in bringing an electric plant to the town. Daughter Maurine wed rancher John B. Soules in 1918, and they moved into the family home in 1937. The c. 1900 house represents a late Victorian transitional style and has long been a focal point for social and community activities and events.
