On behalf of the City of Granbury, Preserve Granbury submitted a request Nov. 7 to the Texas Historical Commission regarding the Alonzo Peyton Gordon House in the Langdon Center. Preserve Granbury presented the commission with the Gordon House’s historic and architectural significance, which the group believed enabled it to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Preserve Granbury asked the commission to concur.
Two days later, Greg Smith with the National Register program at the Texas Historical Commission sent the ruling that the A.P. Gordon House is eligible to be listed in the register.
“Preserve Granbury’s directors are thrilled to be able to offer this important historic preservation service to the city and members of our community,” said Claudia Southern, the group’s president. “This means our community will be able to apply for important historic preservation-related grants to fund restoration of the Gordon House, a significant historic property in Granbury.”
