Notes

Photograph of 724 W. Kolstad taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. The Four Square is a distinctive house type that is easily identified by its 2-story box-like massing, low hipped roof with extended eaves, and its off-center front door, and this house possesses all of these characteristics. Because it has changed only minimally since its construction in about 1910, the house is a good example of this locally rare type of domestic building. The most severe alterations are the metal columns on the porch which detract from the property’s historic character and integrity. According to city directories, Angelo M. and Minnie Burns owned and resided in this house from as early as 1926 through at least the early 1940s. During the mid-1920s, Mr. Burns operated the A.M. Burns Plumbing & Electrical Shop, located at 313-15 W. Main. Later, during the mid-1930s, the shop was located at the corner of N. Magnolia and W. Oak; by 1941, the business had relocated again to 503 John.
