JOSEPH AND ANNIE BURKHEAD HOUSE - 935 N. QUEEN (TO THE RIGHT) BUILT 1895 ONE-STORY MODIFIED L-PLAN WITH QUEEN ANNE FEATURES
The first known occupants of this house were a conductor for I&GN railroad, Joseph P. Burkhead and his wife, Annie. They occupied the house from around 1926 to the early 1940’s. This house is an exceptional example of a modified L-Plan. This was a common floor plan in the older sections of Palestine. The square columns on the porch may not be original. This is a fine example of a common home built around the turn of the century.
