In 1877, Tennessee native John Wesley Faught and his wife, Etta, arrived in Fort Worth by train and traveled the remaining miles to Denton County by wagon to put down roots and live off the land. Using nearly every cent they had, the Faughts paid cash for their first land purchase at a rate of $6 an acre. With the pocket change that remained, the Faughts began their life together as a farming family — raising crops, and ultimately, five generations of North Texans.
Around the turn of the 20th century, John Wesley built the two-story farmhouse that still stands as a tribute to the grit and passion of a family that worked the land for more than a century. Today, the Faught House serves as a coffee shop for friends and neighbors to gather. We are grateful and humbled to carry on the Faught legacy of farming and family.
