Notes

Photograph of 117 W. Kolstad taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Palestine contains fewer than a dozen of 2-story houses that are relatively narrow and deep when compared to other historic residences in the city. The proportions of the building resemble those of the shotgun, which typically is a small 1-story building. Perhaps the most distinctive feature, besides the plan and 2-story height, is the 2-tiered porch. The exposed rafter ends and box columns are indicative of the Craftsman movement and suggest a circa 1920 construction date. Only minor modifications, such as the screening of the second floor porch, detract from the property’s integrity. The current owner notes that this house was built in the early 1920s as apartments by Mrs. Kate Turner. City directories for 1926 do not list the dwelling; by 1935, however, they show that W. Reed Lowrey and his wife Helen lived here. By 1941 the house was occupied by Earl L. Belt, the manager of the Pratt Jewelry Company, and his wife Billie. The current owner also notes that the house was converted from apartments into a single-family dwelling sometime in the 1970s.
