Special to BENEATH THE SURFACE NEWS
The Stephenville Historical House Museum is gearing up for its annual potato soup supper benefiting the Oxford House.
The drive-thru event will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22, on museum grounds located at 525 E. Washington Street a few blocks from the downtown square.
Donated to the museum in 2010 the Oxford House is a Queen Anne style, three-story home built in 1898.
Exterior restoration and renovations have been completed, and plans are underway for the renovation and use of the spacious interior of the home. The house was originally located on Graham Street and was moved to the museum to be preserved as an architectural connection to the history of Stephenville.
“The Oxford House is certainly unique for our community, and many have offered significant time and resources to preserve it. Now it is time to move this effort to the next stage,” museum board president Dr. Eric Morrow said.
“Discussions are underway to determine the future use of the Oxford House, so that in addition to preservation, the House is a benefit and destination for the community, the region and beyond. Plans will be announced in the months ahead as the museum board and community partners move forward.”
Tickets for the supper are available at The Home Place or by calling the museum at 254-965-5880.
The requested donation is $10 per ticket. The dinner includes potato soup, all the fixings and dessert.
