701 White

A large 1-story 1880's house faced White at 707 White until about 1921.  It was in the middle of the corner lot.  In 1921 Luigi Pancamo, an Italian immigrant and a shoemaker, bought the lot.  He moved the house to the northern half of the lot and lived there at 707 White until 1932.  His wife was also an immigrant; 3 of his children were born in Italy and 3 were born in Texas.  After moving 707 White, Luigi Pancamo constructed the bungalow now at 701 White, presumably as a source of rental income.  Arcangelo Maenza bought both houses in 1932, and they remained in the Maenza family as rental property until 1996.  Something happened to 707 White before 1996; 701 White survives.
