- “In the late 1940s, the interior of the house was remodeled according to plans prepared by Winston-Salem architect William Roy Wallace. When the present owners renovated the house in 2014-2015, they restored some of the original features based on physical evidence, retained some of the 1940s features when there was no evidence of earlier treatments, and made a few changes based on personal taste. … Even with the alterations of the 1940s and 2014-2015, the house still strongly projects the feeling of a substantial and sophisticated dwelling from the turn of the nineteenth century in Forsyth County.” (NRHP nomination)
- The 2014-15 renovation included the construction of a one-story addition behind the house, connected to the original structure by a hallway. “Although large, the one-story frame addition was designed and built to be as sensitive as possible to the historic character of the original house and to have the least impact on it. Among other things, the addition housed a new kitchen and two bathrooms, so that these facilities did not interrupt the original fabric of the house.” (NRHP nomination)
- The property is subject to a historic preservation and conservation agreement held by Preservation North Carolina.

- Price/square foot: $211
- Built in 1874
- Listed October 6, 2020
- Last sale: $172,000, June 2015

- 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.
