The Family in 1963

Gladys Johnson 

Was an entrepreneur before women of her era even taught about business. By 1963 she ran and owned a cafe in downtown Dallas as well she dabbled in real estate. She became a part of American history as she was the one that rented the room to Lee Harvey Oswald at the time of JFK's assassination.        

Patricia Hall  

I was 11 years old in 1963 an impressionable little girl that was caught in one of Americas most historical events. Over the years I realized that there was much more to this story than the world knew. This house is my inheritance an legacy I am determined to honor the history of my family.
