[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.
