[601 S. Sycamore - Pearlstone / Maier House]
The residential neighborhood south of the city’s historic downtown contains many late 19th and early 20th century houses; however, a substantial number of 1920s dwellings were built as infill. Most of the residences of this later period are relatively small frame bungalows. This house deviates from the pattern because of its scale, materials, and design. The 2-story house with brick veneer is also one of the city’s few examples of the Spanish colonial Revival style. Few alterations detract from its historic character, and the building retains much of its integrity. German immigrant Solomon Maier and his Texas-born wife Lucy had this house built in the mid-1920s. Mr. Maier came to Palestine in 1882; his various endeavors included operating a wholesale tobacco company, a saloon, and working at a bank. He was vice-president, and later the second president of the Palestine Salt & Coal Company, which mined half a million tons of salt and 25,000 tons of lignite west of Palestine during the first half of this century. After her husband’s death, Mrs. Maier continued to live in the house through the 1940s. Mr. and Mrs. Lamar Hamilton were later owners of the house. Mr. Hamilton was a son of the founder of the Palestine Herald-Press, while Mrs. Hamilton was the daughter of Martin A. Davey, the prominent oilman who donated the land for the Palestine Dogwood trails. texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth26392/
[611 S. Sycamore]
This 2-story frame dwelling represents the kind of late 19th and early 20th century houses that prevail in the neighborhood south of Palestine’s historic downtown. Alterations on the porch and the placement of synthetic siding over the original exterior finish diminish the building’s historic character. According to one owner, D.J. and Lillian Price had this house built in 1890, and they continued to live here through the early 1930s. Mr. Price was a general passenger agent for the I&GN Railroad. By 1935 the house was occupied by renter Henry B. Bovy, a timekeeper for Missouri Pacific. Later, during the early 1940s, renters William S. and Ina V. White lived here. Mr. White was a salesman for the Texas Power & Light Company. texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth26393/
[715 S. Magnolia]
Photograph of 715 S. Magnolia taken from the road. One of the most popular building types in Palestine is the modified L-plan house. This dwelling is a good example. With its distinctive hipped roof and gabled extensions, the house displays some Queen Anne and Classical Revival architectural embellishments. The use of shingles in the gable ends and the dormer are indicative of the Queen Anne style, while the small Doric-like columns and simple balustrade on the porch reflect an influence of the Classical Revival style. In good condition and with few alterations, the house retains its integrity to a high degree. Prominent local architect John S. Moad designed this house in 1902 for James A. and Mathilda Caldwell. Mr. Caldwell was the chief dispatcher for the I&GN Railroad. Later owners included E.M. Burrell, owner of Murrell’s Variety Store (located at 115 W. Main), and his wife Odis, who lived here during the mid-1920s. From as early as 1935 through at least 1941, the house was owned and occupied by Walter S. and Ellen Miller. texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth26401/

[1209 S. Sycamore]
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.

City directories note that later owners included David and Mattie Holley, who lived here from as early as 1926 until at least 1941.
