Notes

Photograph of 504 S. Queen taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. This modest 1-story dwelling is an example of a T-plan house. A derivation of the L-plan, this building form has a central projecting wing and a cross-gable roof plan. The bay window on the front wing displays Queen Anne ornamentation. Minor modifications, most notable a rear addition, affect the building’s historic character, but the house still retains much of its integrity. According to one owner, contractor A.F. Fagan built this house in the summer of 1892 for Mollie A. Cooper, her two sisters, and their mother. The Cooper family lived here until 1925, when they began renting this house and themselves moved to a larger house at 211 W. Dallas. Renters of this house included the Carl Hiser family, who rented from Miss Cooper from 1925 through 1930, and various other tenants who rented from the Cooper estate from 1930 through 1942. Mr. and Mrs. W.F. Oden owned and occupied the house from 1942 until 1945. The house has had several different owner/occupants since that time.
