The Goodman LeGrand home was originally built in 1859 as a one-story, four-room house, and established on a nine-acre wooded parcel of land. In 1940, Sallie Goodman donated the home to the City of Tyler with instructions to maintain it as a museum. A Texas Historic Landmark since 1964, the well-manicured grounds cover almost an entire city block. It was the first property in Smith County listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2010, it was designated a Historic Site by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).
