Waggoner-Hicks House

Spottswood Lomax, a founder of the noted Matador and Espuela (Spur) ranches of Texas, built a Queen Anne house here in 1890. It was remodeled in the colonial revival style around the turn of the century by the prominent cattleman W. T. "Tom" Waggoner, who deeded it to his son, local banker Guy Leslie Waggoner, in 1904. Three years later, Vernon farmer and oil investor E. P. Hicks purchased the property and it remained in his family until 1967.

A former eductor and a prominent civic leader, Berry served as city attorney of Vernon and as Wilbarger County Attorney. The interior of the house features elaborate Victorian detailing.
