Notes

Photograph of 906 N. Perry taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. The center-passage house is one of the most enduring vernacular forms not only in Palestine, but also in all of Texas. This house is one such example and is noteworthy because it retains much of its integrity. The turned-wood posts, jigsawn brackets and small gabled extension above the primary entrance are suggestive of the Queen Anne style. The most distinctive feature is the central interior chimney, as most center-passage houses in the state have gable-end exterior chimneys. The early history of this house is unknown. According to one owner, it was built between the 1850s and 1870s, and remodeled in the 1890s. Based on city directory research, it is believed that George and Mary Carroll owned and occupied the house as early as 1926, but that soon after that date Mr. Carroll died. Mrs. Carroll then moved next door to 900 N. Carroll, continuing to own this dwelling and using it as a rent house.
