Notes
Survey number HABS MD-999
Significance: This house is a tangible example of a mid-nineteenth century vernacular dwelling in the former mining village of Texas. It was the residence of Patrick Kenny, who arrived in 1850 from Ireland to be the first teacher at the school built that year. The house is also significant for its adaptive and continuous use; the south gable end was shared with another structure; the front (west) stone wall was rebuilt to the same dimensions in frame. It should be noted that the historical significance of this structure is due to its interrelationship with the remainder of the historic district. Due to its overall lack of integrity under the National Register of Historic Places Criterion C, this house is not considered to be significant as a separate entity.
