Designed by Dallas Architect Charles Alexander Gill and built on a lot received as a wedding gift from Yancy McKellar, this was the home of local business and civic leaders William A. and Blanche Brooks and their family. Built in the Queen Anne style in 1898, the home was remodeled and updated with colonial revival style elements in 1915. Prominent features include a round turret, intricately detailed chimneys, and a wraparound porch. Typical of the homes built in this area at the turn of the 20th century, the Brooks House is a significant part of Forney's architectural heritage.
