[209-211 W. Kolstad - Grace Methodist Church]

Date: February 1993
Creator: Goebel, Matt
Description: This property is one of thirteen historic churches in Palestine. The building occupies a prominent corner lot, making the church a prominent landmark in the residential neighborhood north of the city’s central business district. The church displays Classical Revival features, and the most notable architectural element is the elliptical archway in the brickwork façade. This church, alternately called Grace Methodist Church and Grace Methodist Episcopal Church in early city directories, was built on this site in 1916 by contractor Will Pheifer. There has been a practicing Methodist congregation in Palestine since 1850; the earliest members met in Bascom’s Chapel, an extant building since converted into a private dwelling located at 812 N. Mallard. During the mid-1910’s the congregation split, with some members forming this church and others forming the First United Methodist Church, located on S. Magnolia. Sometime before 2006, it changed hands and is now the One Way Apostolic Faith Holy Temple Headquarters.

[315 E. Kolstad - Greenwood House]

Date: February 1993
Creator: Goebel, Matt
Description: During the late 19th and very early 20th centuries, the Queen Anne style enjoyed considerable popularity locally, especially among more affluent citizens. This large, 2-story frame residence is one such example, although the application of asbestos siding over the wood siding detracts from the property’s overall historic character. Other than the new siding, the house appears to have changed little since its construction in 1903. Judge Thomas Benton Greenwood (1832-1900) and his wife Lucy Henry Gee built a one-story house on this site in the 1870s, which later was enlarged into the present 2-story building around the turn of the century. A native of Mississippi and a Confederate veteran, Mr. Greenwood was a prominent Palestine lawyer during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. In 1872 he formed a law partnership with John Young Gooch (later a state senator); subsequently, the two men formed a law firm with John H. Reagan, the former Postmaster General of the Confederacy and U.S. congressman. Dr. Bethune F. McDonald, a physician and surgeon with offices at 103 ½ W. Oak, purchased this house in 1935.
