3738 E First ST – First

This one-story house clad in false bevel drop siding has a hipped roof with a side gabled bay and a recessed corner porch. Although this house is first listed in the city directory in 1930, its form and classical details suggest that it was probably constructed about 1910. Mrs. Loula Meyers Alcorn, a seamstress for Dickson-Jenkins Manufacturing Co., was the first identified occupant of the house in 1930, but the Meyers family owned several parcels of land in this area and it is possible that the house was originally constructed by or for another member of the family.
