  • Last sale: $38,000, February 1980
  • Neighborhood: Dunleath Historic District (local), Summit Avenue Historic District (NRHP)
  • Note: The house clearly needs work on the interior. The low price also may be attributable to the condition of the kitchen and bathrooms (which aren’t shown in the listing) and the air conditioning, which is provided by central air, a heat pump, an attic fan and window units.
    • Oddly, the historic district’s NRHP nomination doesn’t mention the house.
    • The listing says it belonged to “Greensboro’s First Mayor,” an unlikely prospect. The first mayor of Greensboro, Alexander P. Eckel, served from 1859-1863 and died in 1906.
    • The first owner was William Vance Forbis (1879-1950). Greensboro has had two mayors named Forbis. Neither of them appear to have lived here, regardless of what the listing says.
    • William bought the property from the Summit Avenue Building Company in 1912. It remained in his family until 1960. William was a furniture salesman. Ownership passed to his wife, Espie Blanche Shepherd Forbis (1987-1954) upon his death and then to their son Lynn V. Forbis (1917-1966), who sold the house in 1960.

    • “A long flight of steps leads up the steep hill from the street to the front entrance. The square house has weatherboard siding with beveled corners and a hipped roof with intersecting, wood-shingled, gabled dormers. The center-bay front entrance with sidelights is sheltered by a gable-roofed porch with grouped wood posts with lattice between the posts.
    • “The porch on the south side of the house repeats the use of grouped posts with lattice, but also has wood-shingled plinths and skirt. The gabled roofs of the dormers and porches all have overhanging, flared eaves with plain bargeboards that have circular notches at the ends. Windows have grouped nine-over-one or six-over-one sash.”

  • Neighborhood: Irving Park
  • Note: The address doesn’t appear in the city directory until 1942, suggesting a date of 1941 or 1942 for the house.
    • The property was bought in 1940 by Roy Leonard Morgan (1908-1985) and Rosamund Woodruff Morgan (1901-1995); they owned it until 1965. Roy was a special agent with the FBI and a lawyer practicing with Brooks, McLendon and Holderness. He had a remarkable career.
    • “While he was a special agent for the FBI, he represented the U.S. government during the 1942 detention of 1200 Japanese, German and Italian diplomats from North and South America at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia and The Greenbrier, in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
    • “In 1946 he went to Tokyo for the War Department to serve as Associate Counsel and Chief of the Investigative Division of the International Prosecution Section (IPS) of the International Military Tribunal for the Far East.” (University of Virginia: The International Military Tribunal for the Far East, Digital Collection)
    • Roy came back to Greensboro, continued practicing law and served on the City Council. In 1950 he went back to Japan to work for Ford Motor Company. Four years later, he went to Germany as a military intelligence analyst for a year.
    • “For the next fifteen years Morgan served in various capacities for the U.S. and Japanese governments. In 1955-1956 he was one of the American advisors to the Prime Minister of Japan, and Chief Justice of the U.S. Civil Administration, Appellate Court for the Far East until 1960.
    • “From 1960 to 1967 he was Special Assistant to the Secretary of Commerce, and consultant of the U.S. government, advisor on international trade with Japan, and in 1962 and 1968, he served as Head of the U.S. Trade Missions to Japan.”

  • Note: Although county records give the date as 1935, the house was listed in the city directory by 1917.

    • Ownership of the property is not well documented in identifiable deeds; Emma appears to have bought it between 1902 and 1910. She sold it in 1917 to her son, Archie Tate Pickett (1891-1979). His ownership was brief; the next identifiable deed shows a different owner selling it in 1920 (with no deed reference to the seller’s purchase of the property).
