137 years ago workers built this home, now the oldest, standing house in Kilgore.
      Kilgore native Jerry Cox says this home has sent his imagination running since he was a child.
   "I pass by it all the time wondering what all these people did while living in it." - Jerry Cox
   THe Dean-Keener-Crim home off of Lantrip in Kilgore has seen its share of history.
   The home and the items inside capture the lifestyle of people who lived through the oil boom.
      The Crim family was the last to own it and gave it to the Kilgore Historical Preservation Foundation in 2000, along with a $20,000 endowment.
  Now there's enough interest from the endowment for the society tostart making repairs.
  For residents like Anthony Brooks. He says it is worth it.
    "I'd be upset with the city, and the state if they let a historical landmark like that go." - Anthony Brooks
   " For the people of Kilgore this house has been here since they can remember, and they are pleased that the local government is helping in keeping it around for other generations to enjoy also" - Kevin Boyce
    "You learn to appreciate your current conditions when you can go back and see how earlier people lived." - Cox
