Phillip Battelstein Mansion At 614 Chartres St.

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the newspaper The Houston Post. dated July 9, 1906 and came across an article about gas ranges. Houston Gas Co. located at 604 Main Street took 5,000 people who bought their gas ranges and published their home addresses.

You wouldn't see something like this today! Very cool.

I was wondering if HAIF has any information regarding this home from the early 1900s. Any Sanborn maps, or photos?  I can only image it was a huge mansion?

Fun fact, in the 1950s, Mr. Battelstein lived in Riverside Terrace at 2115 Wichita Street.
