Notes
Survey number HABS NC-359
Building/structure dates: 1919 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1933 subsequent work
Significance: This house is a typical example of vernacular architecture of Portsmouth Village in the first decade of the 20th Century. As a common house of the village in the early 1900's, this small home contributed to the general historic scene of Portsmouth Village, an historic district entered on the National Register of Historic Places for its importance as the only existing village on the Core Banks south of Ocracoke Inlet. The tangible or physical significance of the house is severely compromised now because it has collapsed into almost complete ruin. "Preservation" would require total reconstruction.
