About the Ellison House


James F. Ellison

James F. Ellison built the home for his wife and eight children in the  1860's after a successful year driving cattle up to the Chisholm Trail to Kansas City.

History of the 

Ellison House

The Ellison House was built in the 1860's and over the years was home to several prominent Lockhart families.

Near the turn of the century the house was home to the Lockhart Livery where visitors left their horses to walk downtown.

In the early 1900’s Walter Pieper and his family lived here and ran a gentlemen’s saloon

on the square.
