Notes

Photograph of 711 South taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. When the popularity of the Craftsman bungalow waned during the late 1920s, another house form, the Tudor Revival bungalow, assumed its place among local home builders. This brick-veneer house illustrates this trend, and it survives as a good and relatively intact example of a Tudor Revival house in Palestine’s southwest quadrant. Byron Freeman designed and built this house for Jesse R. and Alma Z. Stein, identified in city directories as African-Americans, in 1927. Mr. Stein worked for the Railway Mail Service at that time; previously he had worked in the Attorney General’s Office in Washington, D.C., according to one owner. Mrs. Stein was a longtime schoolteacher in the Palestine I.S.D. She died in 1961, but Mr. Stein continued to live here with his niece and her family until his death in 1967.
