House at 638 South Magnolia Street

US / Texas
Listed By: Texas Film Commission
Location ID: #030-10144961
This large, brick Georgian home was built in 1910 for Dr. J.C. Silliman. The architect was James Firth Brook, a New Jersey native and later resident of Palestine, who designed many prominent local buildings, including the Redlands Hotel in downtown. The original owner sold the home to his cousin, John H. Silliman, a Mississippi native. Mr. Silliman operated, in Palestine, one of the largest hardware stores in East Texas which was founded in 1871. Ten years after this house was built, Silliman married architect Brooks' daughter. The house displays quoined walls, which are the blocks delineating the corners of the building, as well as the Palladian window and tile roof. Click here for additional info.
