    I'm a frequent visit to Crockett. Our middle daughter lives there in the "suburbs" out toward Grapeland.

    I visit that beautiful house almost every time I go through town, detouring a couple of blocks from my commuting route. There are many gorgeous Victorian-era houses in Crockett, plus some charming bungalows, including one that has been recently restored (and which is now for sale) on Hwy 7 about three blocks from downtown.

    I felt a little silly featuring just the Aldrich home, because as you say, there are so many nice Victorians in Crockett. The drive in on Hwy. 21 is lined with near-palatial mansions. The drive in on 7 is also beautiful. Crockett must have had several millionaires per capita at one time.
