Henry G. Damon

Born in Florida, Henry Damon served in the Confederate Army and was taken prisoner during the Civil War.  After moving to Corsicana in 1873, Damon became a lawyer and established the Texas Loan Agency with his former partner businessman W. R. Bright.  Headquartered in this building from 1890 to 1900, the agency was an early real-estate mortgage company that became a leader in the area's industrial development.  Damon was also an early Chamber of Commerce and an active prohibitionist.  He was buried in Oakwood Cemetery.   (1984)
