Notes

Photograph of 412 S. Sycamore taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. This impressive 2-story frame house embodies many of the physical features associated with the Queen Anne style and is one of the best examples of this architectural mode in a neighborhood filled with many similarly detailed houses. The building is in an excellent state of repair, with hardly any non-historic alterations. As such, the building retains its integrity to a remarkable degree. A local historian believes that this house was built for Julian and Jennie Bo-Ann Stephens Pennybacker around the turn of the century. Mr. Pennybacker, a Mississippi native, moved to Palestine to help his brother and sister-in-law (who lived nearby at 814 S. Sycamore) write a school history book. Later owners included William P. and Katie L. Persons, who lived here as early as 1926. Mr. Persons died soon after that time, but his wife continued to live here into the early 1940s.
