2105 Kane

This large 2-story house on lot 8 was built in about 2011. It replaced a large 2-story house built by John Sweeney in 1892 mostly on corner lot 7 but partly on adjoining lot 8. That house was moved westward between 1911 and 1924 so as to occupy only lot 8 and burned in August 1956. Six occupants died in one of the 5 deadliest fires in Houston history.
