Brown home: A house gets a second chance

When Theresa and Bobby Brown bought the old house across from Muskogee Country Club, several people told them they should just bulldoze it.



Two years later, they are glad they didn’t. The Browns like old, not new, so they set about gutting the 1907 house and making it their own version of an old house with new life. Their suggestion was to replace it with a new Tuscan-style home. They added to the back of the house, bringing it to 4,200 square feet of old and new that reflects their personalities and interests.
