Notes

Photograph of 904 W. Louisiana taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Although this modest 1-story frame dwelling lacks much stylistic ornamentation, the building is an outstanding local example of vernacular residential architecture. The house has a central hallway and rooms on either side, and this configuration is known as a center-passage plan. The historic resources survey identified over 60 houses with such floor plans, but few retain their integrity to such a high degree as this house. The earliest known residents of this house were renters J.E. and Agnes Peeler, who lived here during the mid-1920s. Mr. Peeler was an employee of the I&GN Railroad. By 1935 the house was owned and occupied by Joseph A. Morris, a salesman for the Home Ice Company, and his wife Attie. The house was vacant in the early 1940s.
