Moore-Tyson House


…was built in 1909 as a white clapboard by banker Louis Moore. Warren Tyson owned it in 1923 and converted it to the then popular Tudor Style. I believe that Felder was the city limit line about then. The renowned Helen Keller stayed here often, as her sister, Mildred Keller, was married to the very same Warren Tyson. Mildred and Helen would attend First Presbyterian Church , where Mildred would sign the sermons to her blind sister. Warren Tyson’s daughter, Katherine Tyson, was a beloved feature and society writer for the Advertiser.
