The Pillot House at Sam Houston Park in Houston, Texas. Built in 1868 by Eugene Pillot, this house was occupied continuously by the Pillot family until 1964. The family gave the house to the park in 1965. The mid-Victorian structure features significant innovations, including its kitchen which is believed to have been one of the first attached kitchens in Houston. In 2001, the 1868 Pillot House was severely damaged by Tropical Storm Allison. Over the past four years, The Heritage Society has focused on restoring the house and safeguarding it from future floods. Photograph taken on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2009.
