The restoration of the Proctor-Green House provides residents and visitors to Cuero, Texas a glimpse into the prosperous past while giving the surrounding historic district another beautifully restored treasure.
Built in 1891 for attorney David C. Proctor, the house is a distinctive, late Victorian residence that complements the various architectural styles found in the Terrell-Reuss National Register District. The style is based on a Queen Anne floor plan, but has strong Shingle-style elements and Colonial Revival details that make it unique.
For the restoration, existing materials throughout were refinished or replaced, starting with the roof. Many of the windows are original, and were refinished. The house features six restored fireplaces with new tile surrounds and refinished mantels. A showpiece is its grand staircase with three stained glass windows above, flooding the space with colorful light.
Cuero takes great pride in the Proctor-Green House and grounds. It is not only beautiful, but it also reinforces the strength of two surrounding National Register districts. To quote Quero Main Street Chair, Kerry Rhotenberry, “the physical transformation and sustainable revitalization of this authentic community asset has become a true economic development driver for our community.”
