Historic Structures


Kellum-Noble House
The 1847 Kellum-Noble House is the oldest surviving masonry house in Houston on its original site. The Louisiana Plantation style house is accented by a double gallery that spans the entire perimeter of the structure. Beginning in 1851, Mrs. Zerviah Noble conducted one of Houstonís first private schools in her home. Decorative arts associated with the cityís namesake, Sam Houston, as well as the Kellum and Noble families, illustrate life in the early days of statehood. In 1954, the organization now known as The Heritage Society formed to save this structure from demolition.
