Yeates-Holifield House – Cooper

This two-story wood-framed house is rectangular in plan, with a hipped roof, flaring eaves, and symmetrically placed windows. It was built c. 1908 and lived in for several years by Elijah Yeates, a real estate agent. William A. Holifield, an executive with the Texas Manufacturing Co., occupied the house during the 1920s and 1930s. Although typical of large wood-framed residences of its period, it is somewhat unusual for the formality of its composition. The house, vacant and in poor condition, is near an expanding hospital complex. The Yeates-Holifield House has been demolished.
