    • “The two-story frame house is typical of Greensboro residences of the first decade of the twentieth century. Simply detailed, the Late Victorian form is characterized by a hipped roofline and a projecting hipped wing. This wing, with exterior access, might have served as an office. Decorative features are staid, including a deep cornice with boxed eaves, nine over nine windows, and a half-width front porch. Interior details curiously hint at an early construction date, such as capped door and window trim, a square stair newel post, and six-panel doors. The house is a special footnote for the neighborhood and represents the earliest history of Lindley Park.” — Benjamin Briggs, Preservation Greensboro
