237. Emma J. Lasley House (FY 1697)
525 Jersey Avenue
Contributing, ca. 1922

The Lasley House is a straightforward Colonial Revival house with a hint of the Craftsman style. It is a two-story weatherboarded frame dwelling with a gable roof, overhanging eaves with large block brackets, paired six-over-one sash windows, and a front porch with Tuscan columns, a plain balustrade, and a pedimented entrance bay which repeats the block brackets of the main roof.


In 1921 Mrs. Emma J, Lasley purchased the property, and by 1924 she (widow of James Lasley) was listed at this location, along with Glenn, J. Archie, James W., Matthew I., Hollie, Nannie, Ruby O., and Wesley Lasley. The house was owned by the Lasley family until 1947. (TR, CD, SH)
