It's time to come up with a new and fun idea of what you could do with this property. Heck, you could do a throwback and open up a classic drive-in with car hops on skates, burgers, fries, and shakes.  Or, it could be a drive-in museum with classic cars, etc. Either would surely draw people from all over the world searching for some Route 66 nostalgia.

Here's hoping!

Historical Smith-Rogers Home in Amarillo

The Smith-Rogers home was originally built in 1904 by Amarillo settlers James Bynum and Marie Lowery Smith. The home was located at 1101 S. Taylor. It was moved to its current location 4841 SW 9th Avenue in 1945 by then-owner Jesse A. Rogers.

The home has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, on 1.16 acres. The home includes a detached 2-car garage with a 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment.

It is a a Texas Historical Landmark and the marker reads:

"This house was built for early Amarillo settlers James Bynum and Marie Lowery Smith c. 1904, and was originally located at 1101 South Taylor Street. The home was purchased in 1945 by Jesse A. Rogers, who planned to move his car dealership to the site. Instead of razing the house, he had it moved to its present site to serve as his family’s home. At the time of its relocation, architect C.W. Brott made changes to the original design. The classical revival style house now features leaded glass windows, roof cresting and interior woodwork from the 1900s and brick veneer, balustrades and full-height columns from the 1940s."

The home was on the market in October 2023 and listed for $945,000 by Sabre Cofer with EXP Realty
