Notes

Photograph of 105 W. Green taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. The most common subtype of domestic building in Palestine from the late 19th century is the L-plan, and this property is a good local example. The house has a front- and side-facing gabled roof, which is the single most distinctive physical attribute of this kind of building. Noteworthy features include the porch with its slender classically-inspired columns and the oculus window in the front gable end. City directories show this house to have been occupied by a rapid succession of renters during the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, including: Charlie W. Stockoff, a master mechanic for the I&GN Railroad, and his wife, Pauline, in 1926; J.W. Prince in 1930-31; and George F. Short, a clerk for Missouri Pacific, and his wife, Maude, 1941. John Stafford Turner Sr. bought this house from the Shorts in 1941, and the family lived there until 1987. Stafford Turner was a time keeper/clerk in the store dept of the MoPac railroad.
