[Photograph of Thompson House #1]

Description: Photograph of information for Thompson House in Denison, Texas. Text: The James G. Thompson house was moved to Grayson County Frontier Village in 1990 having been moved from Nellie Chambers property on PawPaw Hill east of Denison. Mrs. Chambers moved the house to her property from Preston Bend but never got the whole structure. Thompson, Grayson County's first County Judge, also served as postmaster. Thompson being a cabinet maker, with the help of his family and possible slaves, built the "log frame" home using white oak logs. A wide hall in the center of the house leads to a back porch with small rooms on each end. One room served as a kitchen and the other Judge Thompson's office and post office. The hall gives the house the impression of a dog trot. It is noted that perhaps transients along the Thompson Ferry Road might have slept in the post office room without being taken into the family quarters.
