Capt. Co A 14th TX Infantry C.S.A.
Proud Confederate Soldier

member of General Leroy Stafford Camp #3
United Confederate Veterans

A successful architect at the age of 30, he enlisted in the Confederate Army and served for four years, rising to the rank of Major and leading the 14th Texas Infantry by the end of the war. He moved to Shreveport in 1870 and became involved not only with the design of Shreveport homes and businesses, but with its arts community, organizing bands and orchestras that performed at venues including the Tally Opera House. He contracted pneumonia in July 1921, succumbing on July 6, 1922. He was buried in Forest Park Cemetery after services by Rev. Dr. Jasper K. Smith, pastor of First Presbyterian Church.

Almost all of the more than 300 structures designed by Allen have been torn down, but a few striking examples remain. These include the Slattery House at 2401 Fairfield Ave., the Line Avenue School at 1800 Line Ave., Antioch Baptist Church at 1057 Texas Ave., the Logan Mansion at 725 Austin Place and the Texas Avenue Odd Fellows Hall in the 900 block of Texas Avenue.
