Photos from: Commanche Nation wants to buy home of Quanah Parker

Preservation Oklahoma

The Quanah Parker Star house was built around 1890 by the Comanche chief and purchased by his daughter, Mrs. Birdsong, upon the chief's death in 1911. Although no one can be certain why Parker painted the stars on his roof, lore has it that he meant it as a display of rank and importance equal to a military general. The Preservation Oklahoma organization has listed the Star House as endangered.
