Historical Marker
    Built in 1901, this house served as the parsonage for the presiding elder (district superintendent) of the Waxahachie district of the Northwest Texas Conference of the Methodist Church for more than 40 years. Mrs. M.J. Cooke, for whom the house was built, sold it to the Methodist Conference in 1902. The Rev. O.F. Sensabaugh was the first of 13 church officials to reside in the house, which features late Victorian - era detailing in its porch, windows and gables.
