I found this home in Midtown from 1913 and thought I would share.

Beautiful home of J.P. Carter. Corner of Main Street and McGowen Avenue.


For an exact address, I had help from houstontimeportal.


2602 Main: Residence of Joseph Presley Carter (1872-1946), president of Attoyac River Lumber Company, with tracts along the river bottom lands between Nacogdoches and Shelby Counties in East Texas; also president of the Carter Lumber Company, his legacy from his brother Samuel Fain Carter (1857-1928), president of The Lumbermans National Bank. Samuel at this time was building the 16-story Carter Building at Main and Rusk, Houston’s first true high-rise building.
