History: The E.H. Crump House was designed by George Mahan Jr. and built in 1908 for “Boss” Crump, the powerful single-term mayor who is said to have picked every mayor succeeding him until his death in 1954. The house features Doric columns supporting the Greek Revival front porch. A second story has recently been added to the rear of the house to blend seamlessly with the original design.
