THE WILSON-WRIGHT-BROOKS HOUSE - 310 E. KOLSTAD (LOOK LEFT) BUILT 1907 TWO-STORY CLASSICAL REVIVAL
This home was built in 1907, possibly by V.D. Wilson, who lived here until it was sold in 1909 to W. Wright. In 1919 the house was purchased by Alfred Alonzo and Rebecca Brooks. Mr. Brooks was an employee of I&GN railroad in the 1920’s and later became Superintendent of the Reclamation Plant for the Missouri-Pacific. The Classical Revival style was extremely popular in Palestine after the turn of the century and this house is one of the finest examples of that style with its pedimented portico and two-story Ionic columns.
