William and Lena Juneman Smith Cottage, 1892
David Canright/Galveston Historical Foundation
This Queen Anne gabled-front cottage features decorative shingles and turned porch columns meant to increase its presence among the upper income houses of the 1700 block of Ball Avenue. William Pautsch built the house for Dorothea Juneman, widow of George Juneman, a bookkeeper for Gengler’s Grocery. Her daughter, Lena, and son-in-law, William Smith, moved into the cottage when it was completed.
