Notes

Photograph of 420 W. Green taken from the back of the house. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. This modified L-plan dwelling is a good example of a locally common house type of the early 20th century. Although almost 200 such buildings were identified during the historic resources survey, few remain in such an unaltered state. City directories reveal that Emory P. Sandel and his wife Pearl owned and occupied this house at least as early as the mid-1920s through the early 1930s. Mr. Sandel was at that time an employee of the I&GN Railroad. Around 1935-36, however, the Sandels owned their own business - the Sandel Hotel, located at 301 ½ W. Oak – and lived there, while this house was occupied by Samuel B. Oliver, a laborer, and his wife Ruth. By 1937 the dwelling was again owned and occupied by the Sandels, who remained here through the 1940s. In the early 1940s, the couple took in a boarder, Fred Whitehead.
