Byars House – First

This one-story, wood frame house has a central hipped block intersected by two perpendicular gabled bays. A hipped porch wraps around the front and side connecting the two bays. Charles A. Byars hired J.A. Medley in 1909 to build this house for $1,200. Mr. Byars worked as a foreman for Drumm Seed and Floral Co. for many years before opening his own floral business at 2900 E. First Street in 1926. The Byars lived in the house until the 1940s.
