  • Significance: Good example of style. Built by the Lufkin Land and Lumber Company for company manager housing. It is the most elaborate of all the residences built in a row, originally situated across the road from the company plant. The Lufkin Land and Lumber Company was active from approximately 1899-1906. It was organized by George A. Kelley and E. W. Frost. The structure is a fine example of the Craftsman/Bungalow style in Lufkin. It is currently in private ownership. It is nominated to the National Register. The significance is architecture and industry. Industry is included because this structure is the best and least altered of all the manager/foreman dwellings constructed by the lumber company during its’s short history.
