Notes

Photograph of 713 N. Queen taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. Eclectic architectural tastes of the late 19th and very early 20th centuries contributed to a proliferation of exuberantly detailed houses, and this trend is evidenced in many of Palestine’s historic neighborhoods. This 1-story frame dwelling, classified as a modified L-plan house, is indicative of this trend and is noteworthy because it retains its integrity to a high degree. The historic resources survey identified almost 200 similar houses, but few survive with so much of their salient architectural features intact. The earliest known occupant of this house was Mrs. J.A. Biggs, the widow of J.A. Biggs, an employee of the I&GN Railroad; she lived here in 1926. By 1933 the house was owned and occupied by David M. and Margaret Karn, who lived here for only a few years. Several renters lived here during the following decade, including R. Leland Carr, the manager of the Humble Service Station No. 130, and his wife Madeline, who lived here around 1941-42.
