Tubbs-Carlisle House

Tubbs/Carlisle House or Tubbs House or Tubbs/Revier House is an historic house in Lubbock, Texas.

Construction

Construction was begun in 1907 and finished in 1908. The lumber was cut and milled from trees selected for use in construction of this house by Isham Tubbs while on a return trip to his prior home in Kaufman County, Texas.

The House was modeled after one found in a magazine picture or catalog utilizing Queen Anne Styling, at the end of the Victorian Era. The Lumber was railed to Colorado City, Childress and Amarillo, as the Railway neared Lubbock and hauled to the site from those railheads by horse and wagon. As of 2007 (100 years), it has been a residence for descendants of the Isham and Texanna Tubbs family continually since their return from Mexico at the conclusion of the Mexican War of Independence about 1910 after an aborted plantation venture that was thwarted by the ensuing chaos of the post war environment.
