Callaway House. Wood County natives Lorenzo Dow Callaway (1869-1918) and Elizabeth Williams (1874-1949) married in 1892 and had five children. Lorenzo joined his father, James Anderson Callaway, in his mercantile business, and had other varied interests including ranching and milling. He also served as a school trustee, city alderman and mayor. Soon after they married, the Callaways built this home. The one-story Queen Anne-style T-plan residence features shingles and detailing in the gables, partial porches, and decorative spindlework and railings. Lorenzo died in 1918 in the flu epidemic. Elizabeth served for many years as manager of lunchroom operations for Mineola schools. The house remained in the Callaway family until 1984. #16887
