Notes

Photograph of 308 S. Sycamore taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Distinguishing features of this 2-story frame dwelling are the asymmetrical massing, vertical emphasis and ornate woodwork in the gable ends and porch. The house is in good condition and remains a good local example of a late 19th century residence with Queen Anne architectural elements. A local historian believes that Rusk architect Theodore Miller probably designed this house around 1898 for the widow Salina Stein, a native of Prussia. There was a Serlena Stein who was married to Simon Stein who died in 1931. Her husband died in 1898 and both are buried in the Jewish Cemetery. During the 1920s through the 1940s, the house was occupied by a succession of renters, including: Joseph A. Campbell, a machinist for Missouri Pacific, and his wife Florence, who lived here during the mid-1930s; and Allen C. Barton, an oil operator, and his wife Gladys, who lived here in 1941.
