The Allen House was built
in 1911 as the home of Dr. Walter Hanz Allen and his wife Nettle
Falconer Allen. The land was purchased from W.R. Ward and is
said to have been the home site of Dr. Allensworth Allen (no
relation) on Allen's Spring, the earliest dwelling before the
town of Marlin was established in 1850. Dr. Allen also built
the Allen Hospital, later known as the Buie Clinic. He lost
his life in the collapse of the Brazos River bridge in 1922.
Mrs. Allen died in 1956 and at that time Mrs. Hazel Bennett
Falconer Goddard purchased the house from the heirs and presented
it to Marlin in memory of her late husband Dr. Boliver Lang
Falconer, the brother of Dr. W.H. Allen.
