Marker Text One of the oldest existing structures in Liberty, this home was built about 1860 by Judge Charles L. Cleveland. It was sold to Frederich F. Foscue in 1870, and William Samuel Partlow bought the property in 1886. Noted as an uncommon example of late Greek revival architecture in Texas, the house also exhibits some elements of the Italianate style. Also significant for its association with three prominent Liberty families, the house remained in the Partlow family until 1981, when it was given to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1962
