3321 A-B Race ST – Race

This complex on Race Street has four identical detached units each with its own garage. Each small house has a gable roof with exposed roof rafters and simply framed windows and doors. The buildings are unaltered, in good condition, and consequently valuable examples of low cost, cluster housing from this period. The complex was built in 1939 as rental housing by J.F. Hightower, a pharmacist, who lived nearby at 3319 Race Street. The houses have experienced a frequent turnover of tenants throughout their history.
