An impeccable example of the grandeur of historical homes of the South is now for sale in historic Palestine Texas! This exceptional residence was built in 1911 for A.B.

Subsequently it was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Sullivan, who named the property "Elmwood", and in 1979 it became the cherished home of Mr. and Mrs. James C. Boone and family.
