STRIBLING HOUSE

abt. 1907

In 1872 Henry Jones Carter built a large two-story house at Blue Ridge, hauling lumber from Waco in ox-drawn wagons. In October, 1907, this house was sold to Thomas Edwin Stribling and his wife Martha Mariah "Mattie" Kirkland Stribling

The above pictures were made soon after the Striblings purchased the farm which had originally belonged to Henry Carter.

 The picture on the left was the front of the house; and the picture on the right was made from the southwest corner (back)  of the house.

This house, which burned in 1977, was later known as the Jack Stribling house. I retrieved from the ashes some  square nails which held this house together--a house where I spent many hours playing as a child.  In one of the front rooms was a pump organ!  What fun!!
