[1209 S. Sycamore]

Description:

Though many Queen Anne-style dwellings survive in Palestine, few retain their integrity to such a high degree as this 2 ½ story residence on S. Sycamore. Most of the noteworthy detailing is on the porch and in the gable ends. A local historian notes that this house was built for prominent local attorney Judge N.B. Morris in 1902. City directories note that later owners included David and Mattie Holley, who lived here from as early as 1926 until at least 1941. At that time, Mr. Holley was assistant manager of the Silliman Hardware Company.
