    Wichita Falls was a small railroad stop town not far from the Red River and the Oklahoma border for many years and grew steadily. In the immediate years before WWI, oil was discovered from shallow wells drilled in the region and Wichita became an overnight boomtown. The growth continued exponentially through the 1920’s and many new subdivisions were added south and west of the downtown core. When I attended Midwestern State U. in my late 20’s I lived in a 20’s Bungalow (now demolished along with nearly every other house on the block) two streets over from Grant St. on Kemp Blvd. It was a busy street back then (early 1980’s) and even busier now.
    However, Buchanan and Grant streets were very intact pre-Depression era residential areas and streetivew reveals they remain largely so today. In those pre-WWII years, zoning in the neighborhood was lax so small workers bungalows were built right next to mansion grade homes on large lots. There were also solid middle class homes like this example built in the neighborhood. The green glazed Spanish tiles (Ludowici?) were very popular in the years when this neighborhood-Floral Heights-was being developed. However, Wichita Falls (home to Sheppard AFB) is in a climate zone with occasional severe weather including large hail and tornadoes. I was there in April 1978 when a massive F-5 tore through the southwestern part of the City killing dozens and creating extensive devestation. A small miracle that these beautiful tiles remain given the severe weather in recent decades. In summary, a fair amount of 1920’s character remains in this house which appears to be in an estate situation with belongings of the last owner remaining when the photos were taken. Some updates appear to be needed in some rooms. There’s probably hardwood floors under the carpeting. Wish they showed more of the solid looking brick garage.

      Hearing that you are also an Midwestern State alum brings a sense of pride to me. Your knowledge and observations about the homes posted are always so insightful.
      Wichita Falls has grown a fair amount the past 15 years since I graduated Midwestern State. Homes like this in Wichita Falls are a great grab and with some love and care, it could be quite the home again. Plus it’s a great central location in town. This area has been on the rough side or was when I was in school, but certain niches of the neighborhood are pleasant as well.

    This was clearly Grandma’s house, and could use some love and care to turn it into a showplace. I’d really love to see more photos of that garage and the upstairs apartment!
