928 West Hickory Street- Rayzor-Graham House

Denton, Texas 76201, United States

Created By: Historic Denton


J. Fred Rayzor (1890-1965) and his wife Lucile Edmonds (1892-1945) purchased the lot at 928 West Hickory from his father, J. Newton Rayzor in 1911. The Rayzors contracted with M. T. Goodwin for a one-story frame house of six rooms on March 28, 1912, to be finished in 60 days for $2,600.70 W. E. and Nannie Moody Graham moved from Lubbock to Denton in 1933 and in 1941, purchased this home from the Rayzors. When W. E. Graham died in 1963, Nannie lived in the house until she sold it in 1974.71 This Colonial Revival style house has the typical symmetrically balanced windows with centered door. The adjacent paired windows have double hung sashes, with multi-pane glazing in the upper sashes. The single-story house was common in the 1920s and 1940s, like Cape Code cottage style house. Uncommon is the large porch instead of an accentuated front door entry. Other examples include 919 West Hickory and 911 West Hickory as a two-story style with the typical front door entry complemented with extended forward porch. There are ten notable Colonial Revival buildings constructed between 1905 and 1940 in the district. Several examples displaying prominent levels of integrity are found at 911 West Hickory and 1010 West Hickory with Spanish Eclectic influence.
