Notes

Photograph of S. Royall taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Even though this house was vacant when this picture was taken and in poor condition, it was still a good and relatively unaltered example of the Queen Anne style. The most noteworthy features of this 2-story frame house are the corner tower, which is set at an angle, and the 2-tiered front porch. Dr. John Milton Colley was the first owner and occupant of this house, which was originally built in the late 1880s as a one-story cottage. Following his marriage to Palestine-native Mary Hunter, the Georgia-born Dr. Colley enlarged the house and added a second story in 1898. Architect Theodore Miller designed this addition. Dr. Colley was at one time the house surgeon for the I&GN Railroad, and he later maintained a private practice at 104 E. Spring. The family lived here at least into the early 1940s. The house has been wonderfully renovated and is once again a great addition to the city.
