Paragraph Briefly Summarizing Known History Of The Property:
Good example of a professionally
designed mid 20th century modern house.
House is located in the Burtonwood
subdivision off Monroe Road and was designed by engineer
Aubrey Y Arant, Jr. who worked for Crosland Homes but
designed custom homes as a side business. The house was
built for the Mitchum family, which had started The Mitchum
Chip Company in 1936. Mitchum still exists as a small
provider of private brand chips/snacks to grocers and has
its office at 2001 West Morehead Street (source of
