Roy Bass House

Contributing, ca. 1920.
One-story hip roof bungalow which appears to be a reverse floor plan of the Orton House. This house still retains its original form and massing, but has some alterations as compared to the Orton House, including a replacement multi-light window on the projecting front bay. Original porch replaced with a shed roof covering and no balustrade. Aluminum siding and one-over-one windows. Roy Bass, a traveling salesman, and wife Vera lived here form 1937 to 1938. Seth E. Edmondson, a police officer, and wife Lucile lived here from 1939 to 1940. Joseph Lavell, a machine operator, and wife Anna lived here 1941 to 1942; Mrs. Grace B. Lyda, widow of Wade H. Lyda, lived here 1945 to 1946; Albert J. Strange, with Central Cafe, and wife Ethel lived here from 1950 to 1951.
