Historical Commission to Meet on July 23rd
LIBERTY, July 13, 2012 - The Liberty County Historical Commission will hold their next quarterly meeting on Monday, July 23 at 6 p.m. at the Parish Hall of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. Commission Vice Chair Linda Jamison will do a PowerPoint presentation on the history of the Cleveland-Partlow House in Liberty.
One of the oldest existing structures in Liberty, this home was built about 1860 by Judge Charles L. Cleveland. It was sold to Frederick F. Foscue in 1870, and William Samuel Partlow bought the property in 1886. Noted as an uncommon example of late Greek revival architecture in Texas, the house also exhibits some elements of the Italianate style. Also significant for its association with three prominent Liberty families, the house remained in the Partlow family until 1981, when it was given to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
The house became a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1962 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
The meeting is open to anyone.
