[506 E. Neches]

[506 E. Neches]

Date: June 1991
Creator: Hardy, Heck, Moore
Description: Photograph of 506 E. Neches taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Most of Palestine's Tudor Revival houses are relatively small houses erected by local contractors from plans that appeared in pattern or popular magazines or were available from lumber dealers. However, a handful of local Tudor Revival houses were larger, more finely detailed and probably were designed by architects. This dwelling appears to be an example of the latter. The property is one of the finest local examples of the style, retaining its integrity to a noteworthy degree. The original owners/occupants of this house were Ernest Z. Peters and his wife Mattie, who lived here from as early as 1930 through at least the early 1940s. Mr. Peters was a clerk, and later manager, for the Silliman Hardware Company, located at 117-19 W. Crawford.

[419 E. Neches]

[419 E. Neches]

Date: June 1991
Creator: Hardy, Heck, Moore
Description: Photograph of 419 E. Neches taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. This property is one of only two local examples of a Four Square house with a brick exterior. The remaining 22 extant illustrations of this early 20th century house form have wood siding. Although the brick exterior on this residence may be an alteration, the change occurred over 50 years ago and represents an important part of the building's physical evolution. The 1-story wing to the side was probably added when the brick veneer was applied. Local contractor B.A. Harrison built this house for Benjamin W. and Zula Proctor in the fall of 1927, and it is thought that Mrs. Proctor drafted the original plans for the house. Mr. Proctor was a clerk for Missouri Pacific. The Proctors lived here until January 1935, when Seymour S. Stafford and his wife Annie English Stafford purchased the property. Mr. Stafford was the proprietor of the Stafford Buick Company, located at 502-10 W. Main. Mr. Stafford died in 1968, and his wife died in 1974.
