In 1941, R. Bernard Lunn (1909-1982) and his wife Pauline (Hayley) (1907-1980) purchased the lot for the house and immediately executed a mechanic’s lien with R.S. Scott and George F. Scott to build the house for $ 3,700. Bernard was a member of the W.N. Lunn Family. Pauline was the daughter of K.H. Hayley, whose house at 202 S. Ave. D has been reviewed in this column. The Lunns married in 1927, and Bernard was a former mayor of Olney and served in World War II.
