Elmwood, a two-and-one-half story frame townhouse, has been home to many distinguished North Carolinians including two Supreme Court chief justices, an associate justice, an ambassador and a historian. The house displays many Federal-period characteristics including molded weatherboards and gabled dormers with fanlights; there are also several post-Federal-period additions dating from the mid-nineteenth century. It now serves as offices.
Date: ca. 1813
