(1846-1918)

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 partner, businessman W. R. Bright. Headquartered in this building from 1890 until 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 member and an active prohibitionist. He was buried in Oakwood Cemetery.
