David Eyre, president of US National Bank, and his wife Beryl lived at 370 North Summer Street (above), facing the Thompson residence. Mr. Eyre was the second generation of a prominent Salem family and was the brother of Mary Eyre, a popular high school American history teacher for whom a Salem school is named.

The Eyre house, designed by the well known local architect, Clarence Smith, survived the 1940s demolition of Piety Hill houses, being purchased by Harry Dorman and moved to the northeast corner of Mission and High Streets.

The house in its present location is seen below.
