Provenance note:
Robert P. Dick (Federal District Attorney, North Carolina Supreme Court Justice), first owner; W. L. Trotter (hardware business), second owner
Historical note:
During the Civil War, Sherman's troops under General Cox used the home as the Union Army's headquarters. The Dicks family was moved into an outbuilding while the General and his staff occupied the house and the lawn was filled with the tents of Union soldiers.
Architectural note:
The style of the house was "Italian villa." A long path led from the sun porch to Judge Robert P. Dick's law office. In 1917, additions were made to the back of the house to make it function as the entrance.
