117 East Lufkin Avenue 1986 Survey Information
  • Site No.: L-0055
  • Address: 117 East Lufkin Avenue (Campbell Furniture Company)
  • Name: Cassels, Hoglund & Clark, Attys.
  • Date: 1920s
  • Town: Lufkin
  • Block: 9
  • Lot: 16
  • Architect/Builder:  Shirley Simons
  • Condition: Good; some alterations, part of cornice and finials removed; recently renovated.
  • Description: 2-story masonry with cast ornamentation at cornice, around central window, between floors; pairs of classical pilasters on either side of facade; string course between floors reads “Campbell Furniture Company,” awning lights replaced by set-in glass; green striped awnings, recessed entry.  [1986 Note:  Original Use: Retail; Present Use: Retail]
  • Significance:  The 1915 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map (Sheet 3) shows a masonry structure with saddlery and shoe repair.  That structure would have been demolished to construct the present structure.  The structure is a good example of the classical revival style; however, renovations and alterations have not been consistent with the original architectural style.  If inconsistent renovations are reversed and original integrity is restored should be reconsidered for National Register.
