Several houses in the district survive from the late nineteenth century. The house on the bottom, located at the east corner of Lee and Wharton streets, is an ornate example of one of the region's most popular house forms of the period. The three-bay, two-story, center- passage-plan, frame dwelling carries an elaborately detailed two-story porch. The porch has a quantity of flat sawn decorative work including balusters, brackets, and fishscale shingles in the pedimented gable roof. It has a two-story rear wing, or ell, as does the similar, brick A. W. Luster House, seen on the top. Located on the north corner of Roanoke and Wharton streets, it is also a center-passage, two-story dwelling with a two-story ell. In addition, it has a two-story, Doric front porch with one-story flanking porches, an entry door with sidelight, and a hipped roof.
