In 1906 Albert L. Houston, a local salesman, purchased this lot in the Fitzhugh-Collins Addition and built a modest home for his wife Fannie and their children.

The concrete hitching block was used in the early carriage days to tie horses and was used by ladies to mount riding horses.

It represents a rare example of horse and buggy days in Tarrant County.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
