Inscription.  To ease post-WWII housing shortages, the Lustron Corp. of Ohio made an unique house of all pre-fabricated steel parts on an assembly line basis and shipped them directly to owners lots. Harold Hess purchased a Westchester Deluxe model with attached garage from a NJ dealer & assembled it on this site in 1950. All walls, roof & chimney, are porcelain enameled steel panels. Between 1948-50 Lustron made 2,498 houses.
