7111 Elm Street

This Folk Victorian home is one of the first three homes built in Frisco on a lot purchased by C. J. Hill from the Blackland Townsite Company in February of 1902. The lumber to build the home was hauled here by wagon from East Texas. The Hill family moved here from Little Elm and sold the home in 1906. The passing years have seen various owners and all have their stories to tell. How about the 300 pound pig named Oliver that lived in the backyard. Now that was some hog! Of course, there were chickens in the yard too. Many of the families that owned the home would rent out rooms and the house only had one bathroom that had to be shared so use of that facility was split into shifts – morning and night – and sometimes you had to wait your turn. The house has seen its share of children and grandchildren through the years that loved sliding down the banister, jumping off the wrap around porch and looking for ghosts in the attic. Just sit quietly and listen – the house might tell you some more stories.
