The Blum House - 1900
<< Back to Virtural Tour
History of the Blum House
This house was originally built in Plano, Texas, in 1900 by D.C. George. Built
as a wedding present for his wife, the new Mrs. George was not allowed to see
the house until it was completed. Its picturesque Queen Anne style, featuring
an asymmetrical floor plan, bay windows, a turret, and jig-saw trim under the
eaves, was popular in both middle and upper class homes between 1880 and 1910.
Technological innovations such as early electric light fixtures, linoleum and a
cast iron cook stove in the kitchen, and a metal shingle roof indicate the new
level of comfort available in homes in 1900.
