601 S. SYCAMORE - BUILT 1929 (Straight Ahead)

This Mediterranean-style brick-veneer home with a tile roof, replaced an earlier frame Victorian house at this address. It was built for Solomon Maier, a German immigrant, and his wife Lucy, who was a native Texan, Mr. Maier, who came to Palestine in 1882, was a saloon operator, banker, and second president of Palestine Salt & Coal Company. This company mined half a million tons of salt and 25,000 tons of lignite six miles west of Palestine from 1902 and was closed by the Morton Salt Company in the 1940’s.
