The house at 320 Westbrook Lane was the second home that the Lobster family owned in Black Springs. William (Bill) Lobster was the Fire Chief for the Black Springs Volunteer Fire Department for many years.
This house is one of the few in Black Springs designed by a known architect. To design their new home, the Lobsters hired Lloyd Walker, a local Black architect who also taught at Truckee Meadows Community College. According to the community, the County was initially opposed to the house's construction, arguing that it was too extravagant for the community.
