In 1894 Francois Tajan, a French immigrant, bought 2 lots at the corner of Lubbock and Sabine. He built the gabled-front extended shotgun cottage at 1806 State Street on the west part of that tract as a tenant house before 1896. It is today on a narrow 34' lot. Tajan built 6 other tenant houses on the east end of the 1800 block of State Street.
