Billings Home H.P. #289
Fred & Virginia Billings Home (1938)

3650 E. Huntington Boulevard
Colonial Revival
Charles Butner, Architect
C. V. Smith, Builder

Easily the most impressive feature of this home is the main entrance, which is centered, inset, and protected by a decorative portico that is supported by four slender Corinthian-style columns.

Fred Billings went into real estate with Rhine Meyering, and in 1914 the partnership acquired and began to market the Alta Vista Tract (of which this home is a part). Billings was an important figure in local civic affairs: he served as the first chair of the County Planning Commission, the Director of the Fresno Chamber of Commerce, and was the Director of the Sanger Citrus Association.
