    Whitewright is one of a number of rural communities in northeast Texas roughly from Gainesville to Clarksville along west-east Hwy. 82 with this town being slightly southeast of Sherman along north-south Hwy 69. The economies of these smaller towns have experienced changes due to the declines of the railroads and family farm agriculture.

    On the bright side, this lack of “progress” has helped to preserve some of the residential architecture of these communities. Whitewright appears to have retained a fair number of nice late Victorian residences like this example as well as a number of others (streetview: https://goo.gl/maps/y2bzQuWTXZCRhJ3X9) This home has had many improvements so I won’t quibble about the price. However, I would imagine the town has a number of worthy fixer uppers that might be quite affordable for those willing to invest sweat equity. Nearby Bonham has a number of fine Victorians as does Honey Grove and the tiny town of Ladonia which has a prominent George Barber designed Queen Anne: https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/8444429513/in/album-72157632685147361/ In summary, this slower paced, mainly agricultural region of Texas still offers some great old homes for those willing to look for them. I found several Victorian homes I wasn’t aware of in Whitewright’s streetview so the next time I’m in the area I’ll make a side trip to see what I can find.

    The breaker box is awesome!
    I love homes with a “back staircase”. I’d love to see before and after photos.
