Nichols-Rice-Cherry House
The 1850 Nichols-Rice-Cherry House is an example of Greek Revival architecture. The two story house has a full-fašade, Ionic column supported, non-pedimented front porch, a subtype of the Greek Revival style that was prevalent in the southern states. The home was originally located on courthouse Square and later relocated to 608 Fargo Street in the Montrose area. In 1959 it became the first historic building to be moved into Sam Houston Park. Elegant furnishings define the lifestyle that was prevalent in Houston when one of the richest men of the period, William Marsh Rice, lived in the house.
