  • Last sale: $427,500, April 1999
  • 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.”
    • He retired to Florida and eventually moved to Mount Airy, where he died in 1985. He and Rosemund are buried in Low Gap.

698 Chestnut Street, Greensboro

  • Auction canceled (had been scheduled for Wednesday June 1, 2022)
  • 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2,041 square feet, 0.23 acre
  • Built around 1917 (see note)
  • Last sale: $155,000, April 2002
  • Neighborhood: Dunleath Historic District (local), Summit Avenue Historic District (NRHP)
  • Note: Although county records give the date as 1935, the house was listed in the city directory by 1917.
    • It may have been built as a rental property by Emma T. Pickett (1865-1949), a prolific real estate investor in the first couple decades of the 20th century. She was particularly active in buying and selling in the area now known as the Dunleath Historic District.
    • 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).

  • Neighborhood: Westerwood
  • Note: The listing shows 1,966 square feet.
    • The property includes a two-car detached garage with a second floor.
    • The address first appears in the 1924 city directory, listed as vacant. The property changed hands six times between August 1921 and November 1924, making it difficult to determine exactly who built the house.
    • Alexander C. “Sandy” Forsyth (1869-1940) bought the house in November 1924. He and his wife, Henrietta Clapp Forsyth (1871-1945), owned it until 1944. Sandy, a native of Canada, was a traveling salesman.

  • Listed April 7, 2022
  • Last sale: $230,000, September 2021
  • Neighborhood: Westerwood
  • Note: The city directory shows William and Ossie Hardin living at this address by 1921. Ossie Pinnix Hardin (1876-1924) bought the property in 1904, before her marriage. William B. Hardin (1857-1928) had a grocery store nearby at 700 Guilford Avenue.
    • William’s will gave the house to the Eliada Orphanage and Rescue Home of Asheville. It rented the property out until selling it in 1944. The institution still exists, now as a psychiatric residential treatment facility, foster care provider, and special-needs and early-childhood education school. It was founded in 1903 by evangelist Rev. Lucius B. Compton.
