This home was built by local architect Lauren Parrott for $5000 in 1934 for Harvey & Lydia Jay. Mr. Jay was a well-respected Fitzgerald attorney for many years and also served as mayor. Thanks to his daughter, Lydia, for the history.

    I was a classmate of daughter Lydia Jay and I remember this house very well. We had early-teen parties out on the side porch several times. Lots of good times.
