This house in Cagle Park was Greenville's first demonstration home as part of the Better Homes in America Movement. Mrs. Robert I. Woodside chaired the committee for the Woman's Bureau of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce that oversaw the construction of the house. The design won fourth prize in the national competition. The design is seen repeated occasionally around Greenville.
