Built 1889 by W.L. Huff; bought 1892 by Dr. J.W. Park (1855-1941).

Born in Texas, Park studied at Louisville (Ky.) Medical College. As doctors were scarce, he was licensed in 1877, and practiced two years in Egypt (Tex.), then returned to take his degree in 1880. Locating in Kaufman, he engaged in active practice until the day before his death.

He married Sallie Wiggins, 1883. After her death, wed Lida Matilda Thompson. Reared six children.

I Have Some Information

The home was restored in 2020-2021, to its original look from a 1905 newspaper picture. At some point before 1971 when the marker was added the porches had been changed. House is in amazing condition.
