Notes

Photograph of 211 E. Angelina taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. One of the most durable vernacular house forms in Palestine is the center-passage residence, and this relatively small, 1 story frame dwelling is a remarkably well-preserved and intact example. The porch, with its turned-wood columns, displays a minimal stylistic influence of Queen Anne architecture. Many of Palestine's vernacular residences also have similarly styled trim, but few retain as much of their integrity as this property. According to Aubrey and Valerie Stephens, the current owners, this house was originally located on Micheaux Street, where it was built as servants' quarters for a larger residence nearby. It was occupied in the 1920s and 30s by members of the Berryman Family. The 1926-27 city directory confirms that O.G. Berryman and his wife Bertha lived at 621 S. Micheaux; Mr. Berryman was the owner of Berryman Fertilizer Works. This house must have been moved to its present location by at least 1935; from that date through the early 1940's it was occupied by A.V. Mims and his wife Lucy. Mr. Mims was a cashier in the Missouri Pacific's Treasury Office.
