Notes

This small 1 story frame residence, located at 703 N. Cedar, is illustrative of the transition from the L-plan to the modified L-plan house. The front-facing gable is indicative of the former, while the hipped roof behind the side gable is a physical attribute usually associated with the latter. The porch trim and the pent roof in the front facing gable are suggestive of the Queen Anne style. According to city directories, this house was rented in the mid-1920’s by E.I. Woltz, an employee of the Garner & Woltz Drug Store, and his wife Allie Rae. By 1935 the house was occupied by Asa T. and Mary High; Mr. High was a carrier for the Post Office. Charles and Johnnie Jansa lived here during the early 1940s. Mr. Jansa worked at a service station at 817 n. Perry. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991.
