Eugene H. Salmon
Built in 1939 for Eugene H. Salmon (1899—1969), this Tudor Revival house designed by Lafaye & Lafaye features a second-story gable-front box dormer with four eight-light casement windows. Salmon was stationed at Camp Jackson during World War I, where he served as news editor of the soldier's newspaper The Jacksonian and wrote the daily column 'Camp Jackson News' for The State. A gifted graphic artist, he founded the Carolina Engraving Company in 1919. He was also an active member of the First Presbyterian Church and the Lion's Club.
