Payne Home, Marlow, Oklahoma, Built by William Henry Harrison Payne, Outskirts of Marlow on the top of the Hill on Jarboe Street Built 1904, Demolished 2006

From its unique design to the way it was conceived, the Payne home took with it a rich history of one of the pioneer families that shaped a community. W.H. Payne and his wife Hattie came to Marlow from Missouri, with brief stops in Texas and Velma, Oklahoma. In 1904, W. H. built a home on Jarboe Street. It was one of the better homes of the time and became a landmark for the Payne family that was passed down to W. H.ís son Joe and his son Joe, Jr. (Jodie). All have passed, but it was Jodie that remembered in a 1973 story in The Marlow Review of how his grandmother told him of the planning of the home. They laid out dominoes as imaginary walls leaving gaps between them to represent doors. And plenty of gaps there were as each of the seven rooms had an outside door. Over the years, a Payne still inhabited the old home before it became a rent house in more recent times. The actual address was 514 W. Jarboe, but a faint 510 was also added over the homes east porch. Three brick fireplaces rose from the roof as one could imagine smoke billowing from all three during a cold winterís night, or how a family could enjoy a beautiful spring day on the wooden front porch that provided a view Mt. Scott on the western horizon.
