THE GAUGHT-HEARNE HOUSE - 107 E. KOLSTAD (LOOK LEFT) BUILT 1915 ONE-STORY CENTRAL PASSAGE
John H. Gaught built this house in the early 1910’s. It was designed by a prominent architect, James F. Brook. Gaught was responsible for some of Palestine’s most notable buildings, including the Redlands Hotel downtown. Gaught sold the house to John R. Hearne in 1914. Hearne was a salesman at the Palestine Hardware Company. The house was sold in 1945 to W.T. Lively who occupied the house through 1971 and built an addition on the building’s rear. The building is difficult to classify and is unique among the vernacular historical architectural types in Palestine.
