Tatum Home

Built before 1900 by William M. Tatum, son of a Corsicana pioneer merchant, this colonial revival style mansion features first-floor palladian windows.  Massive ionic columns support the the two-story porch.  Tatum's son Clifford A., who later took over the family hardware business, moved his bride into his parents' home.  The younger Tatums raised their family here and remained in the home throughout their lives.  The family sold the house in 1970.
