Description:

Photograph of a 1 ½-story, brick, Tudor Revival-style house located at 107 E. Park Avenue in Palestine, Texas.

Note:

Photograph of 107 E. Park Avenue taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. The Tudor Revival enjoyed marginal popularity in Palestine during the late 1920s and 1930s, and this 1 ½ story dwelling is a good example. The property remains virtually unaltered, with its integrity largely intact. The earliest known occupants of this house were Philip F. Myers and his wife Jennie, who lived here as early as 1935, according to city directories. Mr. Myers, who was president of The Grand Leader department store, died soon after that date, but his wife continued to live here through the early 1940s.
