Known as the William P. Crawford House
409 W. Fifth Bonham, TX
Constructed at the turn of the century by William P. Crawford, founder and owner of one of the first full-line department stores in Bonham, the handsome edifice displays the first sign of the stylistic transition from Victoria styling to Colonial Revival, which became popular for large homes in Texas from 1900 to World War I. In plan an overall form, the house displays asymmetrical Victorian touches in its crenulated roof line, assortment of bays and wraparound veranda. However, its port cohere, and porch columns, bracketed cornice, panel plinths and garland trimmed frieze are Greek and Roman motifs reborn in the early 20th century’s Colonial Revival architecture.
The many windows are perhaps the houses most exquisite Victorian feature. A mélange of stained, beveled and small paned windows is set in an assortment of picturesquely square, round, rectangular and eyebrow-shaped frames. The fish-scale shingles on the surface of the dwelling also bear a Victorian stamp.
Crawford progeny continued to occupy the house until 1949, at which time it was purchased by what proved to be a succession of owners including the Rev. Paul Campbell, long time pastor of the First Christian Church of Bonham.
