Gray-Fish-Richardson House

This two-and-a-half-story frame dwelling is an excellent example of a middle-class home of the late nineteenth century, and it is one of the few houses on Blount Street that remains on its original site. Although it features the Eastlake and Neo-Greco styles of decoration that were popular in the late Victorian period, the actual execution of the detailing is somewhat unusual in Raleigh.

Date: 1881; before 1903
