Built in the High Victorian Italianate style in 1868, the two-story Sam Bell Maxey House State Historic Site in Paris, Texas was the family residence of Sam Bell Maxey, a Mexican War veteran, Confederate general, and two-term U.S. senator. Maxey and his wife Marilda raised their family and hosted many distinguished guests in this home, which was commonly regarded as a town social center.
