*Property Information for 301 N. Perry St in Palestine, Texas – Home for Sale by Lisa Priest REALTOR with Picket Fence Realty.
It’s that time of year where ghosts, goblins and witches are everywhere. The tombstones are in the yards and they might even have a pile of bones sticking out for dramatic effect. It’s a fun and escapist time of year and one of my favorites, for sure. Everyone loves a haunted house at Halloween, but what if it is a real-life “haunted” house?

This lovely 2 bedroom 1 bath Historic Tudor Cottage is now SOLD and with it’s new owners. Congratulations to both my clients on the sale & purchase of this great home in Palestine, Texas!
Palestine, Texas was established in 1846 and features over 1800 historic sites, including homes, businesses, churches, monuments, cemeteries and museums. We are very lucky to be surrounded by a rich historical heritage in Palestine! I get asked often by folks about historic districts and whether or not their home is in a historic district. However, even if your home is not within one of the registered districts, you can still apply your property to be a Palestine Designated Historic Landmark.
