DESCRIPTIONDownstairs there were two bedrooms, a bath, a snail kitchen, a large dining room, and a large living room. The stairway and pantry divided these rooms from the parlor. The parlors were two large rooms divided by an arch. They used these parlors for awhile as a store room. Melvin Cox used to tell about he and his brothers getting candy from these storage rooms. Later they were used as the parlor. The floors were covered with light cream-colored carpet with big red and pink roses. The furniture was heavy mahogany; the two-seaters and chairs were upholstered in dark green mohair or velvet. They were beautiful rooms where all the family enjoyed relaxing.
HISTORYJohn D. L. Pearce was indicated as owner of the lot on the old pioneer map of St. George.
The Harriet Cox biography talks about this as being Melvin's family's new house.
