The 1950 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map shows this house has not changed since it was listed in The Green Book. It map depicts a two story, frame dwelling with a noncombustible roof and a one-story front porch. In 1950, there was a one-story garage to the rear of the house. The house is two bay with the entrance door on the north side of the primary/west elevation. 

Detailed History

The only Lawrence Jones listed in the 1950 census is a 28 year old Black man who lives at 1228 Rome Street with his in-laws, James and Mary Wells. His wife is Grace Jones. Due to the different address, it is unlikely this is the same Mrs. Lawrence Jones.
