Lacy T. Haith: A Teacher, A Builder, A Minister:

Immediately under the picture is the second home, which Mr. Haith built for his family. The homes (3) to the right were built by Mr. Haith and his Stephens-Lee High School trade students. The buildings to the right represent a portion of Haith Drive. The two homes with columns were built by Mr. Haith; others by different carpenters and contractors. These are only some of the homes built by this dedicated man.
