Notes

The Four Square is a distinctive house type that was built locally during the 1910s. With its box-like form and hipped roof, this residence is a good example, but does not have the broad extended eaves as seen on other similarly classified homes in Palestine. The building has Classical Revival features as evidenced by the use of a one-story porch with Doric-like columns, a pediment over the central porch bay and a hipped dormer with a Palladian-like arrangement of windows. The house has change only minimally since its construction about 1910. The earliest known occupant of this house was R.L. Wiley, a banker, who lived here as early as 1926. By 1935 the house was owned and occupied by John S. and Vallie Temple. During the 1930s Mr. Temple worked at the Lincoln Service Station; later, in the early 1940s, he worked at the Cities Service Station.
