The John Lee House
This late Victorian dwelling, displaying Tuscan porch columns and other Colonial Revival details was constructed in the asymmetrical Queen Anne style for John and Florence Jefferies Lee and their children.
A principal in the lumber firm of Bass, Brown & Lee, the owner, it is said, used only the finest materials in his home. By 1900 Mr. Lee's company merged with others to form the Danville Lumber and Manufacturing Company which supplied goods for construction in this community into the 21st century.
Daughter Myrtle Lee retained the family home where she lived for more than half a century until its sale in 1955.
