Notes

Photograph of 1208 S. Magnolia taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. The residential neighborhood south of Palestine’s downtown contains a large number of 2-story frame houses, such as this property. With a box-like massing, the house has a 1-story porch across the front on the ground level, a central dormer, and an off-center gabled extension from the roof. The house displays a stylistic influence suggestive of Queen Anne architecture, and it retains much of its historic integrity. This building has served a variety of institutional and residential purposes. According to a local historian, oilman and entrepreneur Martin A. Davey built the house around 1904, and in 1905 sold it to three local physicians for use as the Palestine Sanitarium – one of several private medical institutions in the city which existed before the construction of a public hospital. During the mid-1920s the house was occupied by a brief succession of renters. Later owners and occupants included Dr. William O. Funderburk, a physician with offices at 103 ½ W. Oak, and his wife Beulah, who lived here during the mid-1930s. By the early 1940s the building was used as the National Youth Administration’s Girls’ Residence.
