  • Display Note: Photograph of 1001 N. Sycamore taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. This 2-story frame dwelling is a somewhat rare example of a Four Square house in Palestine. It has the box-like massing, low-pitched hipped roof, and off-center front door that are characteristically seen on Four Square houses. The building has modest amounts of architectural ornamentation on the porch that illustrate an influence of the Classical Revival style. The addition onto the porch detracts somewhat from the property’s character. According to one owner, John Phillip Roquemore, an executive with the I&GN Railroad, built this house in 1911 for his parents, John Lewis Roquemore and May Cordelia Roquemore. Mr. J.P. Roquemore’s sisters and brothers-in-law also occupied the house, and the two sisters co-occupied the house as widows in the later years of the family’s occupancy. The Roquemore family occupied the house until 1979.
