A piece of Oak Cliff rock ‘n’ roll history could be yours.
The childhood home of Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan is for sale — and what a bargain!
He describes it as 3 miles from Bishop Arts, having fresh paint, a big patio and privacy fence, hardwood floors and new heating. Also this: “Gated parking with plenty of space in the front for the car enthusiast.”
The house on Glenfield Avenue is a couple of blocks from Oak Cliff Nature Preserve, not far from Kiest Park.
Jim and Martha Vaughan bought this sweet little house in the late 1950s, and she lived there for approximately 50 years. Stevie lived there until 1972, when he dropped out of Kimball High School and moved to Austin.
The other two schools the Vaughan brothers attended, from one of our previous lists:
Lenore Kirk Hall Elementary
This elementary school opened in 1955 when Stevie Ray Vaughan was 1 year old and was built for $560,000. He learned to play the guitar at age 7; classmates from L.K. Hall remember him, even in elementary school, as a kid who was obsessed with guitar.
L.V. Stockard Middle School
2300 S. Ravinia
Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan attended L.V. Stockard Middle School and not Greiner, the Oak Cliff school more commonly associated with his legacy because of its music academy. The Vaughan brothers did attend the old YMCA, which is now the Greiner Middle School gym. The Stevie Ray Vaughn Memorial Scholarship, established by the artist’s mother and friends in 1993, is given annually to a Greiner music academy student. This year, about $16,000 was awarded.
