Lustron House

Built in 1949 by/for Lonas and Elizabeth Williams.  Purchased from the Lustron Corporation of Columbus, Ohio, via Taylor-Made Homes of Greensboro. This was the first Lustron house built in the Triangle area.

Mrs. Williams initially ordered the pink structure with a green roof, but unfortunately they were out of that color at the time. The Chapel Hill Junior Chamber of Commerce held a public viewing of the house (as a fundraiser) in late May and early June, 1949.

This Lustron House was built/assembled in 1949 for Federico G. Gil, a then-assistant professor of political science at UNC. Purchased from the Lustron Corporation of Columbus, Ohio, via Taylor-Made Homes of Greensboro. It was Model #2 in "Dove Gray." Gil purchased the land in April 1949, as Lot #5 of the Mt. Bolus Development.

In the 1950s a two-story addition (upstairs is living area, downstairs is a garage) was attached to the east side of the original structure.

Gil sold the property in 1992 to the Garcia family. It is now owned by Edgardo Garcia, and is rented out.

Built in 1950 for Edwin J. and Alta Stringham. The house was purchased from the Lustron Corporation of Columbus, Ohio, via Taylor-Made Homes of Greensboro. In 1950, architect Jim Webb designed an addition that was built soon afterwards. The property itself (Lot No. 7 of the Mt. Bolus Development) was purchased by the Stringhams in March 1950.
 
 
The estate co-executors of Edwin M. Stringham (i.e. Edwin J.'s son) sold the property in 1996 to James and Edith McEntire.
 
In June 1997, Landscape architect David Swanson obtained and disassembled the Lustron with assistance from Charlie Kahn. A new house was built on the lot afterwards.
 
Circa 2002 Swanson sold the structure, still in parts and in a trailer, to Gary Ace and Luna Mountainsea. As of 2012 the house was still in storage and available for sale.

In 1979 James M. Webb purchased the house from Price and lived in it until his death in January 2000. The property was deeded through his estate to a philanthropy (the "James Murray Webb Trust") set up to support the UNC Planning School. Webb's stepson Archibald "Archie" H. Kelly was allowed to live in the home until his death in October 2015, however.

The Trust sold the property in October 2016 to Lisa Rahangdale and Brian Jensen. In May 2018 it was sold to 4BBL, LLC.
