William Duerig Farm On Old Main Street Rd.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was looking for information regarding the Greenwood Sanitarium located on South Main Street (actually on Old Main Street Road) and came across this small, unknown dairy farm called Duerig's Farm.

It appears that the farm was owned and operated by William J. Duerig.

I found all these newspaper articles and ads in The Houston Post dated 1913 - 1918. While the articles never mention South Main Street, or Old Main Street Road, I don't think South Main extended towards the Greenwood Sanitarium before the 1920s. "Main Street" would actually be Old Main Street Road.
