Saving and Documenting the History of Honey Grove, Texas


B. O. Walcott built this three story home in the early 1890s.  It was the first home in Honey Grove to have an "inside" bathroom complete with a bathtub and hot water.  The bathroom featured a water well under the floor and a hand pump for filling the overhead water tank.  The water could be circulated through copper heating coils installed in the pot belly stove in the room.  The third floor was a large ballroom where many elaborate balls were held for Honey Grove's society and out-of-town guests.


The home was later sold to John Arthur Underwood , Sr.  The house was torn down in the 1940s.
