THE I.S. ROGERS HOUSE HISTORIC FRISCO LANDMARK DEDICATION

Please join the Heritage Association of Frisco at a ceremony
Saturday • October 23, 2021 • 2pm
6974 Oak Street • Frisco, Texas

The first home of Frisco’s first doctor and first mayor, Dr. Isaac Stewart Rogers, was discovered this year after massive exterior renovations exposed two small horizontal windows in the home’s second story gables, a feature found in an early photograph of the home. After research by the Heritage Association confirmed the home’s historic significance to Frisco, efforts were made by the new owners to save what original features remained. These included the stair bannister, some interior doors, and shiplap boards used for accent walls.

A historic marker placed by the Heritage Association will be unveiled at the home during Saturday’s ceremony. Current mayor Jeff Cheney and former mayors Mike Simpson and Maher Maso will honor Dr. Rogers who served as Frisco’s first mayor from March 27, 1908 to April 4, 1911.

Homeowner Barbara Green will give tours or the 120 year old home following the ceremony.

What are the stories of the North Texas women who fought for the right to vote? How did their opinions change? And who should we be thanking today, every time we all go to the polls? Join Dallas Heritage Village Executive Director Melissa Prycer for a look at this story.
