1010 West Hickory Street- Yancey House

Denton, Texas 76201, United States

Created By: Historic Denton


The brick home was one of three houses fronting West Hickory built by C.C. Yancey on a last large land lot on West Oak and Hickory Street. Heralded by the Denton Record-Chronicle as “one of the largest residential property (deals) made in a number of years in Denton”, Yancey purchased the empty lot that was part of the Evers home from A. F. Evers for $18,000 in January 1920. The lot was east of the Evers home with frontage on both W. Oak and W. Hickory streets of 240 feet and a depth of 320 feet.

Yancey, a realtor in Denton, built several residences in the 1920s. Three of these homes would front W. Oak Street and the other three would front to W. Hickory Street. The house at 1023 W. Oak was built by Yancey in 1921 for Judge J.W. Sullivan and his wife. Yancey built two additional homes at 1015 W Oak for Daisy Cunningham who purchased the lot from Yancey in 1924 and later built in 1930. He built the duplex at 1011 W. Oak in 1929 for Elizabeth and James Isaac Anderson. During 1922 to 1923, Yancey built the four additional homes immediately behind these three homes on West Oak Street. These homes facing West Hickory are at 1010 West Hickory, 1006 West Hickory, 1004 West Hickory and 1000 West Hickory Street. Charles C. (C.C.) & Maggie Yancey built their home at 918 Haynes Street in 1922 during this this activity.

Spanish Eclectic style houses feature low pitched roofs with minimal overhang of eaves perfected with red tile roof covering. Prominent arched entrance doorways are accompanied with a principal window feature. Wall surfaces are usually stucco. The style reflects Spanish architecture as inspiration centered on the entry door and complemented with an ornate surround as from stonework. Double sash, arched, multi-paned window doors frequently open to balconies or porches. Decorative iron window grilles are common as are balustrades on cantilevered balconies. Red tiled porches are typical of this style including designed tilework and iron lighting. This is the only example in the district.
