     This home was constructed in 1854 by John Faires (1801-1878), who had come to McKinney from Tennessee three years earlier. Near his home he built a Blacksmith Shop, where he worked skillfully with metal and wood. The hand chiseled front door of Faires' home reflects his Woodworking Craftsmanship. The Greek Revival Style House, originally located one block West, remained in the Faires Family until 1975.** Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1984***
