JAMES E. COPELAND HOUSE - 201 E. KOLSTAD (LOOK RIGHT) BUILT 1900 TWO-STORY QUEEN ANNE
Many homes on this tour will not be mentioned because of the application of siding or cement asbestos shingles over the original wooden siding. However, this is an unusual and noteworthy example of the Queen Anne style on the Northside. The corner tower with a conical roof is a very distinctive element in this home’s architecture and was felt to be worthy for inclusion on the tour. The earliest known occupant of this house was James E. Copeland, who lived here from 1930 through 1936. Mr. Copeland was the proprietor of the Copeland Jewelry Store located downtown. Mr. Copeland’s daughter, Margaret, was the first Rose Queen crowned in Tyler. After her coronation, Tyler vowed never to elect another out-of-town Rose Queen.
