This house built of brick, sandstone foundation, interior lath and plaster walls, and wood moldings exemplifies Murray City 20th Century architecture.
Originally constructed for Arthur Townsend, Murray City Mayor (1930-1931), it provided convenient access to the Murray Mercantile, which Arthur founded in 1900.
Sold by the Townsend family years later, the property was used as a rental until purchased and restored by its owner in 1990.
The home boasts of sliding pocket doors, hardwood floors, ten-foot ceilings, period light fixtures, and an iron claw-foot tub.
Exterior brick, cedar roof, and front porch have been restored.
Located at 4843 South Poplar Street in Murray, Utah
