Marker Text A. C. (Clayton) Luther (1896-1982), a Tennessee native, began to develop the area in the early 1930s with residential and commercial buildings. In the 1940s, he began construction of the Luther Apartments on Highland Street. The apartments were later renamed Curzon Place Apartments when Highland was renamed Curzon Avenue. From Luther’s travels to Florida, California and Europe, he developed a particular architectural style with Spanish, Moorish and Mediterranean variations. Over the years, many prominent families have occupied this unique property, whose primary architect was A. C. Webb.
