Iuka House



Wheeler Phillips Family
(includes information about the Iuka House)




This photo of an unknown group was taken in front of the Iuka House, 308 Duson in Palacios. The home was built by Wheeler Phillips circa 1910 and in early years was used by the BYPU encampment when there was an overflow of campers. The house is still standing and is recognizable by the unique porch posts. Notice the oyster shells pressed into the curbing around the house.

If you can identify the group or any of the individuals, please email.
