Notes

The Tudor Revival style became popular in Palestine during the late 1920s and 1930s, and this 2-story brick and stucco dwelling is one of the city’s best examples of the style. Distinctive architectural features include the decorative half-timbered woodwork on the exterior, the steeply pitched, cross-gabled roof, the windows with small panes, and the incorporation of stone into the masonry exterior walls. The house retains its integrity to a noteworthy degree. Locally prominent architect Theodore S. Maffitt designed this house in 1928 for Dr. Robert H. McLeod and his wife Flora Bartholomew McLeod. A native of East Texas, Dr. McLeod was a local physician and house surgeon for the I&GN Railroad, and served as mayor of Palestine from 1939-47. The couple lived here through the 1940s.
