Vincins Shoe Store (Block 4)


Vincins Shoe Store

Vasle Vincin (1885-1946) was a Rumanian who migrated to the United States around 1904. He and his family lived in Galveston, then Houston, and then Texas City before finally settling in Humble in 1915.

Mr. Vincin opened this building in 1935 as a shoe repair shop and general merchandise store. His son George later took over operation of the shoe store.
