Now demolished, the Leroy Adams Residence was built to highlight the increasing need for residential construction for low and middle income families. Built on a small lot, the house was incredibly basic, a concrete slab base, 4 1/2 rooms with additional attic space, a shingle exterior, and asphalt shingle roof. The original sale price was $9,750. Today the site includes a slightly larger more recent structure, although two houses away still exists a small dwelling (pictured) that could be the Leroy Adams Residence’s twin.
