Description: This 1 ½ story dwelling is a somewhat rare example of the Tudor Revival style. Distinctive characteristics of this architectural movement as seen on this house include the cross-gabled roof, decorative half-timbered woodwork in gable ends, and windows with small diamond-shaped panes of glass. This house remains virtually unaltered. According to a local historian, prominent Palestine architect Theodore S. Maffitt designed this house for realtor Paul Sims Colley and his wife Alma in 1929. The Colleys continued to live here at least through the early 1940s.
