R. F. and Minta Pool House
Developer Jefferson D. Hefley completed this
house in 1902 as part of his Hefley Heights
subdivision. R.F. and Minta (Fraim) Pool
purchased it the same year. R.F. came to Cameron
in 1881 and opened a confectionary stand, which
grew to become a department store business. He
later founded the Pool Manufacturing Company, a
large operation with textile factories across
Texas. Subsequent owners of the house included
Milam County Tax Collector A.W. Tabor, as well
as several other merchants and civic leaders.
The house has functioned as a private residence,
apartments and a bed and breakfast but still
retains its original Queen Anne styling.
Features include spindle frieze and balustrade,
corner tower with bracketed eaves and fishscale
