The Sherman-DuVall House is a historic mansion and vacation rental built in 1870 but recently restored. The house contains a total of 18 rooms which have been decorated with Victorian period furniture.
Houses of this grand scale, period and decor are difficult to find, yet the Sherman-DuVall House is the first in Palestine to be made available as a vacation rental
for one or more families, wedding or business functions. Located in the heart of the historic district and Old Town just down the street, there are many things to do and see including local site-seeing, The Texas State Railroad, The Big Woods Hunting Resort and Davy Dogwood Park for the spring-time Dogwood Trails Festival and Parade.
