HINZIE BUILDING - 111 W. SPRING ST.
One of the earliest of Palestine's boom-town structures, it was built by real estate dealer Martin Hinzie in 1878. It is considered the oldest commercial building in downtown Palestine which maintains most of its original façade. Although alterations have destroyed much of the historic character on the ground floor, the second story appears to be virtually unchanged. Architectural embellishments and the elaborately detailed parapet present an outstanding example of the Victorian Italianate style.
