Historic Coyle Farmstead
The Coyle Farmstead is comprised of the farmhouse and several outbuildings, and is located at Pecan Grove Park adjacent to the Rowlett Community Centre where the house was moved in January 2009. The farmstead was originally located to the west of this current location; it was moved to its current location due to the construction of the George Bush Tollway Extension by the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA). This moves was the result of Section 106 mitigation as the farmstead has been determined as eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.

During February and March of 2010, members of the Quimby McCoy Preservation Architecture, LLP met with numerous local non-profit organizations, civic organizations, advisory boards and commissions and selected individuals in the City of Rowlett. These meetings were held to assist the City of Rowlett in planning for the future use of the historic Coyle Farmstead. At each of these meetings, Quimby McCoy solicited thoughts from these community organizations in order to understand public opinion about the historic Coyle Farmstead, and hear recommendations from the public for adaptive re-use of this historic res-use and site.

Public involvement played an important role in developing the various re-use concepts for the Coyle House. The various public meetings held proved productive in generating ideas on the adaptive re-use of the Coyle Farmstead. Quimby McCoy used the input from the meetings to created different re-use options for the building. Please click here for the Historic Coyle Farmstead Adaptive Re-Use Study Summary Report.

This report was presented to City Council on September 7, 2010.
