Weatherford banker W.S. Fant built this Greek Revival style house in 1890, attempting to duplicate the architectural style found in his native state of South Carolina. It features a raised front porch on the East and South with balanced columns. The house retains its original 12 ft. beaded ceilings, wainscoting, and hardwood floors. The house had been vacant and neglected for 25 years when the first restoration began.
In January 2008, the house caught fire and was severely damaged (Click here for the newspaper story Fant House Fire). However, the home was purchased and restored over the next year and once again stands proudly among its historic neighbors along Lamar Street.
