     Foster-Weir House

Listed in National Register
E of Navasota on TX 90
The Foster - Wier House, built in 1859, is an example of vernacular Texas Greek Revival architecture. It faces
northwest on State Highway 90. The house is a detached, one and one-half story dwelling on piers with a cellar
and three native sandstone chimneys, two located on the north side and one on the south side of the house.
Originally there were four chimneys (accommodating the cellar and the first floor) on each side, but two were
removed at an indeterminable date. In the early 1900s, the back porch was enclosed, and the bath and the
originally detached kitchen were added to the rear. In 1971, the house was rehabilitated to its present condition.
A large porch runs across the front of the structure. It is supported by six simply designed white columns. The
front door, symmetrically centered on the porch, has triple lights on each side, with a decorative wood panel
approximately one foot off the porch floor. The door is flanked by two large double-hung, 6/6 windows, two
small windows upstairs and three larger windows downstairs, all with screens. The south, rear chimney originally
was located between the back window and the cellar steps. On the north side are four screened windows, three
6/6, double- hung windows which are part of the added kitchen. The front chimney on the north side has recently
been rebuilt. the back of the house has a door and six screened windows. Three windows are large 6/6, double-hung,
two are 3/3, double- hung, and one is 4/4, double-hung. Originally, a small porch was located to the rear,
but only the original ceiling remains. Three dormer windows across the front are symmetrically spaced and are
double-hung with 6/6 panes.
The floor plan, two rooms deep, with a wide central hallway, makes excellent use of the northwest winds. The
rooms on the west side have always been used as bedrooms. Each has a closet. On the east side are the front
parlor and the informal dining room. The second floor was used mainly for storage until it was completed in
1971. The cellar, only one-half underground, was used as the formal dining room with a food storage room
toward the rear. The underground cistern is located in this cellar storage room. The house is presently painted
white with brown shutters.
The remaining out buildings, which are considered contributing to the historical integrity of the structure, are the
ruins of a cotton gin and an underground cistern. The cistern, located approximately 200 feet from the house, was
part of the commissary building. Only the lower, stone portion of the cotton gin remains, approximately 500 feet
north-northeast of the house. Both exterior structures, and the house, occupy approximately 5 acres.
The Foster House is representative of a vernacular Texas nineteenth century Greek Revival structure. The mixture
of the climatically practical central hallway floor plan with the classically influenced exterior detailing create a
style of architecture which was needed in southeast Texas to cope with the warm, humid weather. Mr. Ira
Malcolm Camp, who moved to Texas from Georgia, built the house in 1859. It was Mr. Camp's familiarity with
this southern style of architecture which influenced the design of the Foster House. Mr. Birdsall P. Briscoe, while
recording for the Historic American Buildings Survey (1936), said of it, "I regard it as one of the best examples of
early residential work I have found in Texas that follow so closely similar work in Virginia and the other Atlantic
seaboard states."
The house was built by Mr. Camp for his daughter who married Sheriff Jeff Gibbs. Sheriff Gibbs is noted as
being the first sheriff elected in Grimes County on the Republican ticket, a major political accomplishment at the
time. In 1883, Mr. R. B. S. Foster purchased the house along with 200 acres of land. Mr. Foster was a successful
farmer and rancher who invested money in surrounding lands which eventually amounted to several thousand
acres. The Fosters, with their three children who were born in the home, resided there until Mr. Foster's death in
1899. In 1900 the Foster's ranch overseer moved into the home. In 1915 Robert F. foster, R. B. S. Foster's son,
became the occupant. In 1966, Robert F. Wier, namesake and kinsman of Mr. Foster, moved into the house and is
the present resident. Mr. Wier restores the cellar and the north front chimney in 1971.
The land which originally comprised the Foster House was a large complex that represented farm life in the
1800's. Located in the complex was a cotton gin, a creamery, a carriage house, a dipping vat for cattle, the
kitchen with an underground cistern, several slave houses (later used by tenant farmers), and a commissary with
an underground cistern also need during slavery times and later converted to tenant farmer use. Presently, the
underground cisterns (not clearly visible), the lower portion of the stone cotton gin, a newly constructed water
holding tank, and grazing land occupy the site.
The Foster - Wier Hose is located approximately two miles east of Navasota, Texas, ten miles south of Anderson,
Texas and eight miles east of Washington, Texas. Both Anderson and Navasota have structures noted for local,
state and national historical significance. Washington, once known as Washington-On-The-Brazos, served as the
capital of Texas from 1842 to 1843. Washington-On-The-Brazos State Park now contains the Star of the Republic
Museum and the Anson Jones House, 1844, a HABS, state and local historic landmark.
The Foster House was built just off the Navasota- Anderson Road which was heavily trafficked during the early
years of the Republic of Texas. The entire area from Anderson, Washington and Navasota has been recognized
for its history, but only a few of the structures are as old or denote architectural quality to the extent of the Foster -
Wier House.

Historical Marker 8579
Navasota, Texas
Erected 1968
From the intersection of SH 6 and SH 90 (East Navasota) take SH 90 approximately 1.5 miles. Early Texas plantation home in architectural style of the Atlantic states. Malcolm Camp, wealthy cotton planter,
built this structure in 1859, with lumber hauled from East Texas sawmills. High-ceilinged rooms are very large. Formal dining room in sandstone-lined cellar was unique. Had detached kitchen. Purchased 1883 by a leading local citizen, R.B.S. Foster (1848-1889), this was birthplace of his three children-- Georgia, Robert F. and Nettie Rose. So stable is this locality that home was continuously occupied until 1966 by Fosters or their agents.1
