Note:

Photograph of 101 W. Green taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. This 1-story frame dwelling exemplifies the modified L-plan house, a common plan type. The shingle siding in the front gable end is suggestive of the Queen Anne style. Porch Changes, such as the box columns and brick pedestals, detract somewhat from the property’s historic character, but the house still retains much of its integrity. Although this house dates to around the turn of the century, city directory research was only able to trace its occupancy to 1926-27, when the building was occupied by Mack and Louise Presley. Mr. Presley was an employee of the Pearlstone Grocery Company, located nearby at 100 S. Sycamore. After her husband’s death around 1930, Mrs. Presley lived here alone, through the 1940s.
