The Partlow House
 2131 Grand Avenue
 Liberty, Texas 77575  

 

     The Partlow House was built in 1860 by Judge C.L. Cleveland, a Kentucky native. It combines both unusual architectural style and a rich family history.  It became a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1963.  For the century that they owned the house, the Partlow family members were influential citizens in Liberty and in Texas.  W.S. Partlow was a native of Greenwood, SC, and  held many offices in local civic organizations.  He was county treasurer.  The Partlows’ daughter, Nannie Partlow Daniel, was the mother of Texas Governor, Price Daniel, and Guam Governor, Bill Daniel.  Miss Miriam Partlow, another daughter and the last owner of the house, was not only active in the NSDAR and civic affairs, but was also a lifelong music teacher and active historian of Liberty County.  Miss Partlow, known affectionately as “Mim,” bequeathed the house to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission in 1981.  In 1984, the Libertad Chapter, NSDAR, assumed administration of the house, which is open by appointment to the public as a house museum.
