508 Dunbar Street, 1922, from Milestones Along the Color Line.

This one-and-a-half story, front-gabled house is two bays wide and triple-pile with wide shed dormers on each side of the main gable and a one-story, shed-roofed addition across the rear. The foundation has been stuccoed and the building covered with aluminum siding. The house retains six-over-one, double-hung wood sash windows throughout with nine-over-one, double-hung windows on the first floor facade and three-overone, double-hung windows in the dormers. A full-width, hip-roofed front porch has a gable on its right end, over the entrance, and is supported by tapered wood posts on painted brick piers; a fieldstone stair accesses the front porch from the driveway on the east side of the house. The house retains beadboard in the eaves and knee braces in the gables. A decorative wooden balustrade in front of the windows in the front gable has been recently removed. A concrete retaining wall extends across the front of the lot.

The earliest known occupant is Benjamin L. Hicks (barber) in 1922.
