Star of Texas Antiques

Gardner Building-Twin Building

In 1908, two conjoined buildings were erected in downtown Palestine. The left side is Bill by Judge P.W. Brown and became Palestine Gas Company. The right side, built by Judge B.H. Gardener, became a silent movie theater called the Gem Picture Palace. The Gem ceased to be a movie theater in the 1930s and the structure became the offices for Texas Power & Light until the 1970s. After three years of intense restoration, the current owners opened an antique store, which is still in operation today.
