Notes

Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. The vast majority of Palestine’s L-plan houses are either one or 1 ½-story buildings; however, this residence is a locally rare example of a two-story L-plan house. The porch, which does not appear to be original, has tapered box columns that are suggestive of the Craftsman movement and are typically seen on bungalows of the late 1920s and 1930s. Since that time, few changes or modifications seem to have been undertaken, and the house retains much of its historic character and integrity. According to the current owner, Harvie Jack had this house built about 1912-13. City directories indicate that the house was occupied by renters during the 1920s through the 1940s, including: A.C. Paul, an employee of the I and GN Railroad, and his wife Nellie, who lived here during the mid-1920s; and Benjamin H. Fathere, a truck farmer, and his wife Susie, who lived here during the early 1940s. The house has been owned and occupied by W.C. and Aline Potter since 1964.
