The Haigler House is a single-family dwelling located on approximately fifteen acres of land in rural Calhoun County near Cameron. Built circa 1893 by Thomas Shadrack Haigler, the simple Queen Anne farmhouse is accentuated with Folk Victorian decorative details and contains approximately 3000 square feet of exterior porches. The porch construction features decorative spindlework, including turned supports, delicate gingerbread, and carved brackets. The house is the central building of a small rural homestead that includes several outbuildings including an icehouse, a springhouse, and a chicken coop/pony stall. When the main block of the house was built, a separate kitchen was likely connected with a breezeway, yet the house was soon enlarged, probably to accommodate the eleven children raised in the house. The house is oriented towards a dirt road which at one time was a county road leading to a now-abandoned church. Cotton fields surround the house, which are still cultivated today. The Haigler House is also significant as the history of the Haigler family reflects early European immigration to this area, the establishment of the Lutheran Church in the southeast, and the rise of cotton as a cash crop and accompanying wealth it created in the state.
