Stockdick House

Walter Adcock built this craftsman style house in 1916 at the corner of Fourth Street and Avenue A for the Adam Henry Stockdick family. Stockdick came to Katy from Iowa in 1896 and became one of the area’s first real estate agents. He encouraged many northern families to move south and establish homes in Katy. In 1929 Stockdick’s son William Chester purchased the house from his parents and lived there with his wife Zeta (Morrison) for many years. Over the years the house was renovated, a back porch was closed in and in the 1960’s a large living area was added to the rear of the home. The house remained in the family until the First United Methodist Church, which owns the adjacent property, acquired it in 2001. In 2002, the church wanted to use the land for other purposes and donated the house, a small well house and the white picket fence to the Katy Heritage Society. In 2003, the society moved the house and fence to Katy Heritage Park leaving the well house for the church to use for playground storage for as long as they need it.

The society removed a large addition from the house to move it. It has been restored to early 20th century style with period wall coverings, beautiful wood floors and charming vintage kitchen. Today the house can be rented for small parties, special events or meetings. Tables, chairs, linens and some decorative or service items are also available. For information about renting the Stockdick house, please email the society at katyheritage@aol.com for details, prices and date availability.
