The Littles-Martin house's original location is unknown, as it was moved in 1918 to North Staples Street. The house was given to Hattie and Willis Little after their retirement by their former employer. Hattie Little is believed to have been the first black Corpus Christie native. The house remained on North Staples Street until the death of the Littles' daughter in 1983, after which the house was again moved to its current location in Heritage Park. Restorations were funded by the National Associated of Colored People (NAACP) and the house is home to the local chapter's offices.
