Mertz-Korner Home
723 N. Anglin
“ The Queen Anne”
G
erman-born cowboy and banker, Christopher W. Mertz built this beautiful
Victorian home in 1892.  Considered one of the most beautiful homes in Cleburne,
the Anglin Queen Anne was built with three staircases and six large closet, a rare
feature in the 1890’s.  The interior details were of the highest styling of the Victorian
period.
Ron and Margaret Korner purchased the home when Mr. Korner’s job required he
relocate to the Fort Worth area. The rest is history and the Korners are helping keep
the history alive for the Queen Anne.
In one of the 5 bedrooms hangs the lace wedding dress of Mrs. Korner’s
grandmother.  Oak woodwork, quilts, drapes, curtains, wallpaper, fabrics, textures,
antiques--all play the part in telling the story of the Victorian age
















Osborn-Landers Home
702 S. Walnut
                   
  “Country Christmas”
The house was built by M.C. Osborn in 1900.  Mr. Osborn lived in the house only 2
years from 1900-1902. In the summer of 2012, the current owner, Elaine Landers, a
Joshua resident had no intentions of moving from her home, until she saw the
historical barn-red home with cream and blue trim at 702 S. Walnut.  She bought the
home and within in 3 months she managed to have a place for everything and
everything in its place.
With its vast corner lot and large living space, she knew this was the place for her
antiques she had collected for years.  A beautiful oak fireplace with original tiles
stands ready to welcome guests as one enters the living room parlor. where Landers
displays treasures of the past.  The front bedroom, one of 4, is called the “Patriotic”
room, as it is decorated with red, white and blue accessories.  
Collections of antique wooden tools, wooden bowls, pottery, pie covers, quilts,
tables, chairs, and more saturate the home to create a vision of the past..
It’s a perfect blend for the owner … a spacious historical home and long-collected
and cherished antiques together.


















Pearson Home
104 Bellevue Drive
New Never looked so good!

This new home was built in 2012 by Dylan and Allison Pearson.  The newlywed
couple designed this home with the desire to blend in flawlessly with the historical
neighborhood.  The home was built on the site of another house which was
demolished prior to construction.  But not without first salvaging many of the older
home's doors, hardware, and claw foot bathtub.  The exterior and interior design of
the house were heavily influenced by the Pearsons' commitment to preserving the
quaint and timeless beauty of Bellevue Drive.

The home consists of 1,437 square feet and offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  
The outside of the home may look like it has been here for many years, however,
you can't help but notice the more updated, yet traditional style of the interior.
You won’t want to miss this house!
