The Curfman Home

The Nenney/Curfman home at is one of the shining jewels of the street. The many renovations of homes here have elevated the street to the finest examples of historic homes. The Curfman home is rich in history dating back to 1874, when Mr. James Patrick Nenney purchased two acres of land and cotton fields on which he built this Italianate style home.

The lumber for the house was bought in New Orleans and shipped to Jefferson by boat, then brought by wagon train to McKinney. A stable and barns were at one time a part of the estate. Mr. Nenney's daughter, Mrs. Marie Stevens, lived in the home for many years before it was sold to the Douglas family. The Curfmans purchased the home four years ago and it underwent a two-year renovation by West Construction. The renovation included raising the house 18 inches, pouring 57 new foundation piers, new wiring, plumbing, air conditioning and building seven new windows to match the existing style. The cabinets in Carolyn's sewing room are from the original kitchen and the stained glass door in that room is from a back porch that was removed sometime in the past. The Curfman's favorite room is the kitchen where they enjoy the view from the large windows to the yard and a warm fireplace in the winter.

As you approach the home, you will be drawn to the beautiful front porch, which is a room in itself! The leaded and beveled glass front doors draw you into a home that has been lovingly restored and beautifully decorated.
