    A very appealing little house – sad to think it might be doomed to renters. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a vacant lot in a nicer nearby neighborhood to which to relocate it…?

    Brownwood, like many towns in this region southwest of the DFW area, has over the decades lost many of its vestiges of the past. I suspect this old neighborhood was established late in the 19th century and continued to thrive until about the middle of the 20th century but lost out like many inner city neighborhoods to suburbia in more recent decades. I sadly have to concur with the rental idea because few would want to live in a faded residential area like this. Still, it is a remarkable survivor and deserves a better fate than continued rental use leading eventually to oblivion. I agree with Barbara in that the best hope for a restored home in the future might be to relocate the house to a move thriving area. In another decade or two, there may be little left of this already fragmented neighborhood than vacant lots and a few small businesses. It would be interesting to see what this neighborhood looked like in the early 1900’s.

    This house is 111 miles from the outskirts of the DFW area, not in suburbia by any means. Brownwood is home to Howard Payne University and Texas State Technical College. It is also one of the largest towns for a couple hundred miles. It is also the county seat for Brown County. It is part of West Texas, not DFW. It is not a horrible neighborhood either considering that house is within walking distance of two major universities. The biggest issue for Brownwood is that there is nothing around, unless you’re oilfield or have ties to the university there really isn’t any major industry and few people choose to move there. Definitely not inner city.

      Sorry for the misunderstanding. Perhaps I should have used Abilene or San Angelo as better examples. Brownwood does sit out remotely from bigger cities. I also admit that the term “inner city” probably is a stretch for a town that has an estimated population of 18,831 (Google, 2017) The thinning out of older residential housing near the business districts of towns and smaller cities is a national phenomenon as has been the flight to suburbia since the 1950’s. Even in smaller towns, new housing is usually constructed away from the business center. Since you live in Stephenville, you are certainly more aware of what is happening in Brownwood than I am in Fort Worth. Thanks for your clarification.

    I live not too far from Brownwood (a couple of hrs or less but in Texas a couple of hrs anywhere isnt too far) & agree, it’s not so small! The most time Ive spent there is for sports with my boys but seems nice! That home is super cute & definitely deserves some love & attention & for that price I wish I could buy it, bring her back & re-sell to the right owner! Totally worth it!
