Photograph of the front of two-story frame house, painted blue with white trim, located at 611 S. Sycamore Palestine, Texas.

Physical Description

1 photograph : positive, col. ; 35 mm.


This 2-story frame dwelling represents the kind of late 19th and early 20th century houses that prevail in the neighborhood south of Palestine’s historic downtown. Alterations on the porch and the placement of synthetic siding over the original exterior finish diminish the building’s historic character. According to one owner, D.J. and Lillian Price had this house built in 1890, and they continued to live here through the early 1930s. Mr. Price was a general passenger agent for the I&GN Railroad. By 1935 the house was occupied by renter Henry B. Bovy, a timekeeper for Missouri Pacific. Later, during the early 1940s, renters William S. and Ina V. White lived here. Mr. White was a salesman for the Texas Power & Light Company.
