Historical note:
The home is one of only two gambrel roofed houses in North Carolina that feature brick end walls. The house exemplifies the characteristic form of wealthy mid-eighteenth century dwellings in this area. The building was moved to Hope Plantation in 1974 for restoration. The move included several outbuildings such as the frame smokehouse. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
