Note:

Note: A. L. Boykin began purchasing lots on Wall St. about 1910. He built this substantial 2-story frame house for his wife and family about 1925; it displays a blend of the Craftsman and Prairie styles. Boykin’s son, A. E. (Arnold Edward) Boykin, who had recently completed 3 years of architectural study at MIT, may have participated in the design. A. E. later joined his father’s building business. A. L. and his family had previously resided in a 1-story frame house at the corner of Pearl and South Moore streets
