[511 S. Royall]

Date: 1970~
Creator: unknown
Description: This modest, center-passage dwelling presents another good illustration of how many late 19th century homeowners applied stylistic ornamentation to a vernacular house form. This 1-story frame residence has a front-facing gable extension and porch with turned-wood columns and jigsawn brackets, all of which are suggestive of the Queen Anne style. Rear additions are not only relatively unobtrusive to the building’s original appearance, but they also reflect the property’s physical evolution and are important architectural features. John H. Reagan built this house in the 1880s for his daughter, Bettie Reagan Ferguson, and his son-in-law, Alexander Ferguson. Mr. Ferguson was postmaster of Palestine from 1886-1890. The dwelling was later the home of the couple’s daughter, Bess Ferguson, who taught in the Palestine schools and was a librarian at the Palestine Public Library.

[512 N. John - Eilenberger's Bakery]

[512 N. John - Eilenberger's Bakery]

Date: 1991~
Creator: Oliver McReynolds
Description: The remodeling for the storefront on this 2-story brick building detracts from the property’s historic character, but the second floor is relatively unaltered. The structure lacks much stylistic ornamentation, but is a good and mostly intact example of a Two-part Commercial Block building in Palestine’s historic downtown. German immigrant Frederick H. Eilenberger (1878-1959) moved his highly successful American Home Bakery to this site in 1918. Founded in 1898, the bakery was originally located at the corner of John and Oak Streets. Eilenberger sold the business to his two sons and his son-in-law in 1949; the bakery continued to sell baked bread throughout East Texas until 1968. Today the business is known as Eilenberger’s Bakery, and is famous for its fruit and pecan cakes, which it markets worldwide.
