In 1912, C.P. Schulze, brother of Irving’s co-founder J.O. Schulze, employed local artisan Fred Joffre to build the prairie-style bungalow for him and his bride, Virginia Tucker. Its cypress siding, low-hipped roof, large porch, and gabled dormer are signature features of the style of early 20th century houses in the area. It was designated as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1986.
