This elaborate Colonial Revival style residence was owned by oilman Foster Brooks Parriott. Designed by the Kansas City, Missouri, architectural firm of Boillot and Lauck, the house exhibits many of the characteristics of the style, including a hipped roof with gabled dormers, dentils, modillions and a simple frieze. It has an elaborate entry surround, including a swan-neck pediment. Parriott, a Standard Oil employee in 1898, was later involved with Leader Oil Company, Carter Oil Company, and was elected a director of Sunray Oil Company in 1937. He was elected chairman of the board of Sunray Oil Company six years later.
The Parriott House was listed in the National Register on September 14, 2002. It was listed under Criteria C and its NRIS number is 02000971.
