  1. I found an article dated October 8, 1934 that outlines Jake Freedman's home located at 1220 Chartres Street. Did he not live at the Domain Privee on Old Main Street Road? Or maybe this was a second house, or even his family home? Several applications for membership in this Congregation were announced. Mr. H. Levin of 1803 McGowen, Mr. Jake Freedman of 1220 Chartres Street, and Mr. L. Dittman of 1506 N. Jacinto were proposed by Mr. Godapper. Mr. H. Passman, of 81 Preston Avenue, was proposed by Mr. J.L. Zuber. Mr. Jacob Rosenberg, of 812 Preston, was proposed by Mr. Sam Rosenberg. These applications were favorable acted upon and the Secretary was instructed to so notify them and extend an invitation to our Friday night services.
  2. My father-in-law was a native Houstonian, and he used to talk about an old illegal casino/brothel(?) out Hwy 90. He said it existed after WWII and up into the 1950's. There was an old brick gatehouse just west of the current Beltway on the south side of 90 that he said belonged to the casino...does anyone know about this, or was my late father-in-law yankin' my chain? Jake Friedman Domain Privee Casino At 11620 South Main St. Edit: This is actually located on Old Main Street Loop Road near South Main Street (Highway 90.)

  4. From The Houston Post dated February 3, 1926: $50,000 Loss in Kenedy Fire. The dry goods store of Jake Freeman located on Main street, was destroyed by a fire Saturday night. The conflagration being the most disastrous to occur here since the destruction of the Breeden-Runge Co. warehouse six or eight years ago. The brick building, the property of Ira Hinton of Oakville was completely gutted by the fire. Mr. Freedman had only recently competed taking invoice and he computes his loss at between $42,000 and $45,000. The building, which had a front of 60 feet on Main street, was conservatively valued at $12,000 with only $4,000 in insurance carried by Mr. Hinton.
