[504 E. Neches]

Date: June 1991
Creator: Hardy, Heck, Moore
Description: Photograph of 504 E. Neches taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. At the time that the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine was done (between 1989-1993) this 2-story brick house was standing abandoned and in poor condition; nonetheless, it displayed noteworthy craftsmanship and design features. Stylistically, the property is classified as Tudor Revival, an architectural movement that gained popularity locally during the late 1920s and 1930s. When completed about 1930, this house was one of the finest examples of the style in Palestine, but its deteriorated state at the time the photo was taken detracts from the property's historic character. However, it still retains sufficient integrity to be significant. According to Palestine city directories, DeWitt W. and Corinne Peale lived here as early as 1935. By 1941, however, they had moved across the street to 503 E. Neches. At that time this house was occupied by Benjamin G. and Louise Liles. Mr. Liles worked at Paramount Cleaners.

[503 E. Neches]

Date: June 1991
Creator: Hardy, Heck, Moore
Description: Photograph of 503 E. Neches taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. This house typifies the kind of Tudor Revival dwelling that was built locally from the late 1920s through the 1930s. This property is significant because it is virtually unaltered, and it retains its integrity to such a high degree. The 1935-36 city directory lists Truman D. Peale at this address. By 1937, however, the occupants are listed as DeWitt W. Peale and his wife Corinne. Mr. Peale worked as chief clerk to the auditor of Missouri Pacific. The Peales remained in the house through the early 1940s.

[506 E. Neches]

Date: June 1991
Creator: Hardy, Heck, Moore
Description: Photograph of 506 E. Neches taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Most of Palestine's Tudor Revival houses are relatively small houses erected by local contractors from plans that appeared in pattern or popular magazines or were available from lumber dealers. However, a handful of local Tudor Revival houses were larger, more finely detailed and probably were designed by architects. This dwelling appears to be an example of the latter. The property is one of the finest local examples of the style, retaining its integrity to a noteworthy degree. The original owners/occupants of this house were Ernest Z. Peters and his wife Mattie, who lived here from as early as 1930 through at least the early 1940s. Mr. Peters was a clerk, and later manager, for the Silliman Hardware Company, located at 117-19 W. Crawford.
