Mr. and Mrs. Joe & Delia Strange built this 13th home in the subdivision in 1939. Joe & John Q Strange were brothers and operated the Coca Cola Bottling Co. at 120 North Street. Emery Strange was their only child. The home is still in the Strange family.
The Joe Strange house is one of the four large anchor homes in the Gamwyn Park neighborhood. The front fašade of the imposing Georgian Revival house is dominated by an oversized broken-pediment door surround. Originally the house had a dependency which was subsequently annexed to the main house.
