Elnora Lucas House

Elnora Lucas House

The house was built in 1939 along the Petersburg Road in Constance for Elnora Eggleston Riddle, a widow who married laborer Truman Lucas in 1941.

The Elnora Lucas House is a dormer front bungalow of compact plan. It features a gently hipped roof with a small, hipped dormer and deep eaves. The walls were covered with narrow clapboards, with simple, flat door and window trim. Extending across the facade is an engaged porch carried by tapered wooden posts set on piers of wire-cut red brick, with contrasting yellow-brick trim and stepped concrete bases, and enclosed by a brick balustrade with concrete coping.
