• Historic Luster House and property in Deep Deuce to be put on market

    After decades of neglect, the historic Melvin F. Luster House and related property is set to go on the open market.



    The primary home was built in 1926 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

    Originally built by prominent African American businessman Sidney Daniel Lyons as his residence, the house passed to Lyon's step-son, Melvin Luster. Mr. Luster died in 1993 and the property is still owned by his heirs.

    The family has some items in the home but it has not been occupied in some time.

    The two story brick house was built in the Italianate style and sits squarely in the middle of the thriving urban neighborhood know as Deep Deuce. The property also includes a smaller house to the east and a historic shop building to the south.

    Sydney Lyons founded the East India Toilet Goods and Manufacturing company, and the factory was a half block from this home.

    Lyons was a successful entrepreneur who owned several retail, oil and real estate investments.

    Located at 300 NE 3rd Street, a price is yet to be set and the property will be listed by Tim Rasmussen.
