Building: Smith-Anderson House (Wilmington, New Hanover County, North Carolina)

Built:
Community:
Wilmington
State:
North Carolina
Provenance note:
John Smith, first owner; Elizabeth Smith Bailey and James Bailey, second owner; Alexander Anderson, early nineteenth century owner; Dr. Edwin A. Anderson, mid-nineteenth century owner.
Architectural note:
The house's plan and second floor triple-hung sash windows appear to be unique among surviving Wilmington buildings. The home's style was altered to fit the Greek Revival mode in the nineteenth century, and then altered back at a later date.
Historical note:
The building is thought to be the oldest surviving structure in Wilmington, and it lies within the boundaries of the Wilmington Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
