History

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.
