Carr-Taliaferro House
(516 N. Grand, Sherman)


Prosperous farmer-landowner Richard Bell Carr (1855-1918) and wife Susan (1858-1940) moved into town from Cedar community. They employed highly regarded contractor J. R. Barrow to design and build this dignified family residence in 1902. Their daughter Susiebel married John Cecil Taliaferro in the front parlor in 1915. Continuing to live here, the Taliaferros later inherited and enlarged the house.
