Anderson Co - Palestine, Ft Houston -Reagan home
The house was razed in 1946. The 1936 photo of the John H. Reagan Home is with the Fort Houston marker which says that Fort Houston was a fort and stockade built about 1836, abandoned in 1841. The site of Fort Houston is "now a part of the historic home of John H. Reagan which is called Fort Houston." TexasEscapes says Fort Houston's lands were acquired in 1857 by John H. Reagan, who achieved fame as a U.S. congressman and Confederate postmaster general. TexasOnline says In 1857 John H. Reagan bought 600 acres, which included the old site of the fort and town, and his home became known as Fort Houston. Nobody says nuthin about it being gone. :( I found an ad for a subdivision called Homestead at Fort Houston. :(
