Two-story home built for Dr. James H. Grant, a native of Virginia, and his wife Mattie Buchanan Grant, a native Texan. Dr. Grant opened his local dental practice in 1883 and later served as president of the Texas Dental Association. An original square tower was replaced by the current circular tower in 1899. Local paper in August of 1899 noted that the house was "being extensively re-modeled and beautified, rendering it very picturesque. Note the rare curved g]ass pane at the base of the tower. This house was restored by noted Texas artist Ancel E. Nunn in 1972-74.
