Inscription.  The Tudor style as it evolved from medieval England to twentieth-century America is well expressed in this charming one-story home. Hollow tile faced with smooth brick, gables with decorative brackets, and a gabled and round arched doorway are classic stylistic elements. Pairs of small-paned French style windows, arranged in ribbons, open inward and retain their original wavy glass. John J. and Fannie Lucy built the home circa 1917. Lucy’s father, John M. Lucy, was an Irish immigrant who founded a Missoula furniture and undertaking business in the 1880s. John J. attended the university, was a charter member of the Gamma Phi Chapter of Sigma Nu fraternity, and graduated in 1908. He and his two brothers joined the family business. Lucy and Sons, Inc. operated the undertaking business until the 1950s; Lucy’s furniture store was a Missoula fixture until 1981. John J. and Fannie raised their daughter here where they were at home until 1944. In 1943, John J. Lucy served as a member of the special hearing board for the Italian seamen interned in Montana.
