[921 N. Perry - McReynolds House]

Description: In its present configuration, the McClure-McReynolds-fowler House has a U-shaped plan; however, it originally was a center-passage dwelling similar to the George & Cornelia Howard House at 1101 N. Perry. Additions during the late 19th century changed the overall appearance and reflect the property’s architectural evolution. The house retains its historic character and integrity and is among the most significant examples of vernacular architecture in the city. Tennessee-native Judge Alexander Ewing McClure (1815-1870) built this house in 1849. After arriving in Texas in 1840 and residing for several years in Fort Houston, Judge McClure moved to Palestine, becoming the first district clerk for Anderson County, co-owner of the “Trinity Advocate” (the region’s first newspaper), and one of the area’s most prominent lawyers. Zachariah Aycock McReynolds (1846-1928), a native of Georgia and a Confederate veteran, purchased the house in 1884. He held several local elected offices during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including district clerk, county clerk, county judge, tax collector, and postmaster. He remodeled this house around 1890, reusing the original timber. In 1934 Colonel Godfrey Rees Fowler (1876-1958) retired to this house with his wife, Ella Sue McReynolds (Z.A. McReynold’s daughter). A grandson of John H. Reagan, Fowler’s military career included action during the Spanish-American war and World War I. The house is currently serving as a Bed and Breakfast called the Dogwood Inn.

[1005 N. Queen - P.A. Kolstad House]

Description: This 2-story frame dwelling is indicative of the kind of house many of Palestine’s more affluent families built during the late 19th century. Stylistically, the house is a hybrid of Italianate and Queen Anne styles, both of which were popular in Palestine during the Victorian area. The pedimented architraves above the windows and the bracketed eaves reflect an influence of the Italianate style, while the turned woodwork of the porch is usually associated with Queen Anne architecture. The original owners of this house were Peter Andrew Kolstad (1856-1922) and his wife Mollie Groth Kolstad (1860-1945), member of one of Palestine’s most prominent early families. Mr. Kolstad was the son of Soren and Ingeborg Kolstad, Norwegian immigrants who settled in Texas around 1853. This house was probably built in the early 1880’s. P.A. Kolstad and his wife lived here together until his death in 1922. Mollie Kolstad continued to live in the house until her own death in the mid-1940’s.
