Robert Blaffer Home At 6 Sunset Blvd.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

A Historian on HAIF had a request of knowledge about one of the Robert Lee Blaffer houses.  I thought I would share this one first before getting to the request.

Snow on ground and shrubbery at Robert Lee Blaffer House (foreground), Sunset Drive, Shadyside and Harry C. Wiess House (Background), 2 Sunset road, Shadyside.

December 21, 1924.


For the address, I found it here:


A Conversation with Jane Blaffer Owen

Jane Blaffer Owen, an arts patron, social activist, and preservationist, was the daughter of Robert Lee Blaffer, one of the founders of Humble Oil & Refining Company (now ExxonMobil), and the granddaughter of William T. Campbell, who established the The Texas Company, which became Texaco. She was born on April 18, 1915, and grew up in the family home at 6 Sunset Boulevard in Houston.
