Mitchell Westheimer Mansion At 1609 San Jacinto St.


Recommended Posts

I know Mitchell Louis Westheimer owned hundreds, if not thousands of acres of land in the Houston and surrounding areas.  From what I gather, his plantation ranch was near the intersection of Westheimer Road and Buffalo Speedway.  I believe Mitchell gave HISD the land to build Lamar High School on Westheimer rd.

Does any photos, or drawings, of his plantation ranch exist? I'm looking for his historic mansion. 

While looking at the Houston Public Library Digital Archives I see a historic mansion that housed the business Westheimer Undertaking Company. It was one of Mitchell's many business ventures. 

Did he and his family also live here? Or was the mansion just an office for Westheimer Undertaking Company?
