History of the Dorris House
1896 Dorris House -- Dr. Thomas Benton Dorris, one of Grapevine's early physicians, arrived in 1885 and built this Queen Anne style Victorian home at 224 East College Street for his wife, Ann Eliza, and daughter, Ione. The house features a square tower, fish scale shingles, and turned and scroll-sawn brackets. Dr. Dorris served as surgeon for the railroad and taught a nursing class during WWI. The house is symbolic of the new prosperity enjoyed by Grapevine after the arrival of the railroad in 1888. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
