Calvert, Texas is memorable for its many homes and other buildings of architectural significance. Most were built in the period 1870 - 1910. One of the primary builders was Hans Peter Johnson. He came as a youngman from Denmark in 1870 when Calvert was growing as a cotton center and the railhead on the Houston railroad. His fiance, Christina Forsander, of Jonkopping, Sweden joined him in 1970 in Calvert.

Among the outstanding homes that he built are the Doremus Home, the Gibson Home, the Hucks Home, the Barton Home, and the West Foster Home. His name is on deeds and entrance steps to several Main Streetbuildings. His name is on the cornerstone of the Calvert City Hall, where he served as an alderman.
