Notes

Photograph of 115 E. Kolstad taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. This property demonstrates how architectural changes over 50 years old can become architecturally significant. The building was originally a modified L-plan house erected in 1914, but was remodeled in the 1930s to its present Tudor Revival-style appearance. The steeply pitched hipped roof with gabled extensions reflect the original modified L-plan configuration; however, the brick veneer, faux half-timbering and entrance bay with round-arched openings and stucco and brick exterior finish are indicative of the Tudor Revival style. The 1930s changes are an important part of the building’s architectural evolution. According to the current owner, this house was built in 1914 by George M. and Pearl Welborn, who continued to live there through 1980. City directories for 1935-36 and 1941-42 confirm this, though the 1926-27 city directory does not list this address. Mr. Welborn was a cotton buyer.
