     Constructed in 1910, this was the home of prominent business, civic, and political leader David Barker (1868-1962). The house was completed during Mr. Barker's third year as mayor (1907-1913) of Houston Heights. Outstanding features of the American four-square style house include its wraparound porch with Tuscan columns and denticulated cornice; gabled dormer centered over the facade; and front entry with transom and sidelights. The home remained in the Barker family until 1971. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1990
