Then, as a result of itchy feet and wanting to get out of administrivia, enter the classroom and so forth, was asked about the possibility of moving to what was then WC [Woman’s College]. And I had no idea of doing this. And then I was asked, ‘Well, please come down during the spring holidays and visit us.’ So I did come down for that interview, and Greensboro being dogwood city, I was overwhelmed. My wife took one look and we agreed: this is not quite the Garden of Eden, but dogwoods were in bloom and that did it, along with the magnetism of Curry School [campus laboratory school], which was then pretty much at its peak as a very ideal place for our three youngsters.”

The porch, which is now screened, features brick posts with paneled caps and a paneled wood frieze. A matching porte-cochere extends from the south side of the house.”

The rocks in the step risers are all laid in a herring-bone pattern.”
    • “”This one-story frame bungalow was long the home of the Bivins family. Joe Bivins (1891-1961) married Ohna Poindexter in 1919. After living in Doughton, where they operated a general store at the end of the Elkin and Allegheny Railroad line with Foley Norman, and then moving to Gastonia, they returned to Elkin in 1925 to live and work. At that time, Joe Bivins and Foley Norman opened the Baseteria grocery store, which they continued to operate for thirty-two years. Beginning in 1930, Ohna Poindexter Bivins served as the first historian of the Jonathan Hunt Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was the granddaughter of Thomas Lenoir Gwyn and great-granddaughter of town patriarch Richard Gwyn.”

    • Henry Dalton Poindexter was born in Yadkin County in 1849. In 1871, he moved to Winston-Salem, where he “became one of Winston’s earliest and most successful merchants,” the Poindexter houses’ National Register nomination says.
    • NRHP nomination: “In 1874, the year of his marriage to Augusta Miller, H. D. Poindexter moved into a cottage on Spruce Street. It is unclear whether Poindexter himself built the cottage, but he obtained the property from E. A. de Schweinitz, a Moravian brother. The original cottage was small, only three rooms, and local tradition maintains that Mr. Gaston Miller, a local builder, helped expand the cottage to five rooms. Miller lived in a two room dwelling on the corner of Spruce and Fifth Streets (the future site of H. D. Poindexter’s large home) until he built a larger home for himself on Fourth Street. When Miller moved to Fourth Street, legend maintains that he offered the two rooms to Poindexter if he would move them to his own lot. According to Ruth Poindexter, her father ‘went to the top and sawed the house in two.’ He then rolled the sections on logs to their new site adjoining his cottage. Eight of the nine Poindexter children were born in the five room cottage.” The family lived there until around 1894.
