Physical Description

1 photograph : positive, col. ; 35 mm.


This property is one of the most outstanding examples of Queen Anne-style architecture in Palestine. The house features exceptional craftsmanship that has been preserved to the present. There are remarkably few alterations, and the property retains its integrity to a high degree. The house is one of the most significant in all of Palestine. Prolific local architect Theo Miller designed this house for Dr. Edwin William and Eva Link in 1897; Miller designed a number of impressive residences in Palestine, including the expansion of the Dilley House at 805 S. Sycamore. Dr. Link (1858-1937) was the son of Dr. Henry Harsnbarger Link, a pioneer East Texas physician who had been practicing medicine in Palestine since the mid-1840’s. E.W. Link was himself a physician, receiving instruction from both his father and professional medical schools. For many years he maintained a medical practice with is brother, Dr. H.R. Link. E.W. Link was active in the social and religious life of Palestine; he was a member of the board of trustees of the local public schools, and also was an elder in the First Presbyterian Church. This house sits on land considered part of the Link family homestead; the elder Dr. Link’s original house still stands across E. Pine at 1003 N. Link. The Link family was responsible for the construction of several other notable historic buildings in Palestine, including the Gregg-Link Building at 101 W. Spring and the Link Building at 521 N. Church. This house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 - Building #80004073.
