562. W.H. Ferebee House (FY 1977)
106 S. Sunset Drive
Contributing, ca. 1927

The Ferebee House is a simple foursquare dwelling exhibiting evidence of both the Colonial Revival and Craftsman styles. The two-story frame house has a pyramidal roof, a hipped dormer, an interior end chimney with an exposed face, four-over-one sash windows, and a hip-roofed front porch with Tuscan columns and a plain balustrade. Although vinyl siding and a south side wooden stair to the second floor have been added in recent years, these alterations have diminished little the overall integrity of the house.


Family tradition claims that it was built for William M. Ferebee and his wife, Nora, who had purchased the property in 1919, but who had been living since ca. 1922 in the house next door (see #563) which they also owned. Ferebee was a grocer. The Ferebees were first listed in the city directories at what was to become 106 Sunset in 192B. They occupied the house until selling it in 1937. (I-Harvin Ferebee, TR, CD)

Garage, Noncontributing:Behind the house is what appears to have been a one-car garage with German siding and a shed roof. It was probably built after 1930.
