Note:

Photograph of 110 E. Pine taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. One of the most popular kinds of historic residences in Palestine is the modified L-plan house. This form was built locally from the 1890s to the 1910s, and almost 200 still survive in the city’s neighborhoods. This property is noteworthy because of its Queen Anne-style trim (seen most prominently in the gable end and on the porch) and the lack of substantive changes to the building’s interior. According to one owner, this house was built for Homer C. and Emma Murphey around 1908. During the 1920s through the 1940s Mr. Murphey owned and operated the Old Town Drug Store (later the H.C. Murphey Drug Store), located at 501 N. Church on the courthouse square. The Murphey family lived here until 1977.
