I live in a house said to have been built in the 1920s by Prassel Lumber. When we bought the house in 2000, my husband and I were told that it was called “le château de Prassel”. I am applying for a grant to help defray the costs of repairing and restoring the windows and tiles in the tower, but I need to fill in the details of the history of the house. I don’t know where to look for the information, and I was wondering if you would point me in the right direction. The house is in Alamo Heights on Cloverleaf Avenue, and I believe it was built in 1927 for a family named Crenshaw. I wonder if the first owner’s last name started with a C, because the wrought iron panels in the dining room and living room have what looks like two Cs back to back. I would appreciate any idea.
