Originally the Lane–Carroll House was located on the east side of Custer Road, just south of the Sam Rayburn Tollway (Highway 121). This house is being restored. The roof was replaced in 2017 and the enclosed porch removed in 2018.
The Allen Heritage Guild planned a fundraiser on September 28, 2019 to complete restoration of the Farm House’s exterior including doors, windows, hardware, paint and steps.
A top priority is to completely restore the Farm House and furnish it to depict Texas farm life during the Great Depression in the 1930s.
