619 S. SYCAMORE - BUILT 1886 (LOOK RIGHT)

One of the two remaining Victorian brick homes in Palestine, the original portion of this home was built by D.N. Darling for resale. The house was stuccoed and scored to resemble stonework. It was later the home of Pennsylvania-born, I&GN vice-president and secretary-treasurer, A.R. Howard and his wife Katie Black Howard, who was a native of Arkansas. Among the additions made in 1899 were, now-removed, an entrance tower and side double gallery. Under Mrs. Howard’s guidance, the local chapter of the D.A.R. was organized in this house on March 6, 1906.
