Dr. L.E. Griffith Home

The L. E. Griffith House (c. 1880) is a fine example of early Texas architecture. It is the second oldest home remaining in Terrell. It was built in 1875 or possibly in early 1876 by James Brown, a carpenter who, in 1872, had built Kaufman County’s 3rd courthouse.

The home was owned by the same family for five generations. It is recognized as both a state and a national historic landmark. It is now the Griffith Homeplace Museum and you you can schedule a tour by calling tour guide, Davis Griffith-Cox at 972-563-6536 during regular business hours.
