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, S. C., 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.
