This charming raised cottage was built for Adolph D. Spaith, a native of Victoria, Texas, and his wife Onnie Ryan Spaith, born in New Orleans, Louisiana. Spaith ran a local meat market. The contractor was J.M. Brashears, who did the work for $1,608.75. It was remodeled by new owners, J. Eduard Angly and wife Anna Carson Angly. Mr. Angly was a Frenchman who made his way to New York when aged 15 and, after coming to Palestine in 1890, became a clerk for I &GN railroad, first manager of the Palestine Salt & Coal Company and a noted banker.
