The plans for this Fernwood, Mississippi craftsman bungalow are in the William T. Nolan Office Records collection at Tulane University’s South Eastern Architectural Archives. The recently conserved plans were featured in the just past bungalow exhibit. Here is what information was provided along with the plans.
Nolan & Torre. Bungalow for Fernwood Lumber Company. [1023 Dogwood Drive], Fernwood, MS. Undated. William T. Nolan Office Records.
Fernwood Lumber sought to attract skilled laborers for its round-the-clock mill operations by developing a company town with its own churches, schools and bungalow residences. Its employees worked 10-hour days.
Conservation Note: This architectural rendering was soiled, torn and creased prior to its recent conservation. New Orleans Book & Paper Lab flattened creases, repaired tears and filled substrate losses.
