The Bright-Lamkin-Easterling Home

The yellow home in the foreground of both pictures is known as the Bright-Lamkin-Easterling home, located at 918 Jackson Street. The other home was owned by Mayor Henry Bernstein. The Bright-Lamkin-Easterling home was built by railroad tycoon William Bright in 1890. He had sold his railroad (The H.C. & A.) to Jay Gould and invested in a home on the fashionable side of Monroe. It cost $7000 to build. It is now on the National Register.
