Marker Text WILLIAMS MEDICAL CLINIC BUILDING DR. JAMES W. WILLIAMS, A NATIVE OF MINEOLA, OPENED HIS MEDICAL PRACTICE IN 1946 AFTER HIS SERVICE IN WORLD WAR II. BECAUSE OF THE INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF HIS PATIENTS, HE BUILT A NEW STATE OF THE ART MEDICAL FACILITY. THE CALIFORNIA-STYLE BUILDING HAS A RED BRICK EXTERIOR WITH A WRAP AROUND WINDOW ON ONE CORNER. ONE OF ITS MOST UNIQUE TRAITS IS THAT IT HAD CENTRAL HEAT AND AIR CONDITIONING, A SYSTEM NOT OFTEN FOUND IN THE 1950s. THE CLINIC IS AN IMPRESSIVE EXAMPLE OF A BUILDING FROM THE 1950s WITH A CONTEMPORARY MODERN ARCHITECTURAL STYLE IN MINEOLA. THOUGH THE BUILDING HAS BEEN PASSED FROM OWNER TO OWNER IT HAS STILL RETAINED THE SAME PURPOSE OF SERVING THE MINEOLA COMMUNITY. RECORDED TEXAS HISTORIC LANDMARK – 2012 MARKER IS PROPERTY OF THE STATE OF TEXAS
