405 E. NECHES - BUILT 1911 (LOOK RIGHT)

This house was designed for local realtor Eugene Fore and his wife Elwyn by famous Texas architects C.H. Page and Brother. Page also designed the present Anderson County Courthouse. Contractor for this home was John Hendrix Gaught, whose contract price was $7,485. The frame Colonial Revival home boasts many interesting features, including the dining room paneled with hand-painted scenes along the River Nile by an artisan from St. Louis. The residence became the home of Anderson County native O.B. Rogers in 1917. He established one of Texas’ oldest continuously operated automobile dealerships to remain in one family. Rogers added the rooms above the porte cochere and side porch. The home is still in the Rogers family.
