Notes

Photograph of 402 E. Kolstad taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. The porch detailing on this 2-story frame house is suggestive of the Queen Anne style. This architectural expression gained considerable favor among residents of Palestine during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Local historians claim that part of this house existed as early as 1870, when local schoolteacher Virgil F. DuBose rented the dwelling from Dr. Henry H. Link, who lived nearby and owned this land. DuBose was soon able to buy the house, which he subsequently expanded. It is believed that he and his wife Lockie began adding the house’s Queen Anne ornamentation after Mr. DuBose became District Clerk, a position he held for much of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. During the mid-1920s Mr. DuBose was manager of the Anderson County Abstract Company, located at the courthouse. City directories note that Mr. DuBose continued living here through at least 1941. Mr. DuBose died on 19 September 1944 and is buried at the East Hill Cemetery.
