OHU50K NOTES

It is especially difficult to find architecturally-pleasing old houses in Texas, a fixer or not, under $100K. Although the shiplap was not meant to be exposed, this one is a gem.

History

According to the 1930 US Census, the widow Alpeh Westerfelt lived here with her three young children, Donald age 7, John age 5, and Jacqueline age 3. Her husband, Lee Westerfelt, died in 1926 at the young age of 31. Lee was manager of the American Theatre on 4th Street in town. Oddly, it seems that Alpeh took and went by the name of Lee after her husband’s death.

The Queen Anne next door at number 611 is a George F. Barber design.
