Welcome to The Larissa House, oldest home in Jacksonville, TX. Started in 1857, this historical property has only been owned by two families. The original owner, the late W.A. Brown, was the founder of Larissa College. The Victorian additions to the home were made in 1874 and include the handmade walnut staircase which welcomes you into the grand foyer. Additional touches, such as the widow's watch, were added in the 1890's. The home's second family, the Stanfills, had a restaurant in the home while living upstairs, where there are 5 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The home still holds much of its charm with beautiful hardwood flooring, and shiplap on many of the walls throughout. With the original touches still intact, you'll find arched entry ways, wrap around porches, 4 fireplaces and original hardware. This property is zoned commercial or residential and could house its next family or your business. Picture this home brought back to life as a wedding venue, restaurant, b&b or anything else you can imagine. With the 600 sq ft veranda built in 2007, you could host lavish indoor/outdoor events.
