Sanborn House at 1311 S. Madison -- built in 1903

The house in the black & white photo was built in 1903 for Henry Bradley Sanborn, the founder of Amarillo. It was originally located at 600 S. Buchannan Street, but was moved to 1311 S. Madison to allow the land at 600 S. Buchannan to be used as the site for the Amarillo Municipal Auditorium, which was built in 1923.
