About

Another of J. Harvey Fowble's masterworks, this home was built in 1907 as a residence and workplace for Dr. Frank Lucas. There are four floors. The doctor kept his office on the first. 


According to Linda F. Greenberg's book, "Sykesville Past & Present, a Walking Tour," the building was one of the first in town to have indoor plumbing. Like the Norwood house, it included a windmill that "pumped water into a cistern on top of the hill and from there water flowed by gravity into the house."
