Description: Photograph of 101 E. Kolstad taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Although the residential neighborhood north of the city’s central business district contains a high concentration of dwellings built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the area also includes many 1910s and 1920s residences constructed as infill housing. This Craftsman bungalow is a prime example. The house remains virtually unaltered with its integrity intact. According to city directories, Daniel B. and May L. Wakefield owned this house from as early as 1926 through at least the early 1940s; they were also the primary residents during that period. Mr. Wakefield worked as a foreman in the electric shop for the I&GN Railroad, and later for Missouri Pacific.
