Interesting Facts:

Park Hill Farm has been noted not only as a landmark, but as a center of agricultural, cultural and social activity, one of the showpieces of Crockett.

  • Park Hill Farm – The Collins-Douglas Homestead
  • Built in the mid to late 1850s
  • Original owner was General Thomas P. Collins, settled in Crockett from Ireland, built a store on the Crockett Square and became well-known and prosperous in the 1840s
  • Prior to the Civil War, General Collins purchased a large tract of land and built the Park Hill house attributed to Abner Cook, famous Austin architect, who designed the Governor’s Mansion
  • The furniture was bought in New York at the World’s Fair and shipped to Galveston, then on to Crockett by oxcart
  • General Collins’ only daughter, Mary Collins, was born in 1842 and managed Park Hill Farm until her death in 1926
  • When Mary was 16, General Collins gave her a 6-year old slave, Eph, who stayed with her all through her life. The house that ‘Uncle Eph’ lived in, which was built for him, is still in use
