Notes

Photograph of 932 N. Rampart taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Palestine contains a large number of L-plan houses, the vast majority of which have balloon frame construction with horizontal wood siding. This residence deviates from this pattern because it features box construction with board-and-batten walls. Although it does not have any stylistic embellishments, the house is remarkably well-preserved and serves as a vivid reminder of the kinds of vernacular residences that were once prevalent in Palestine around the turn of the century. A number of renters occupied this house during the early 20th century, including: Alex Criss, a laborer, and his wife Lizzie, who lived here around 1926 and were identified in the city directory as African Americans; and Zack and Beulah Huddleston, who lived here during the early 1940s.
