Hubert and Marguerite Haywood House

Newlyweds Marguerite and Hubert Haywood hired Raleigh contractor Howard K. Satterfield to build this Prairie-style house in 1916. Bucking local trends, Marguerite drew inspiration from a dwelling in Harrisonburg, Virginia, from where she lived before her marriage. Strong horizontals, sheltering eaves, and low-hipped roofs characterize the Prairie style. The style is common in the Midwest, where it was developed by Frank Lloyd Wright and others, but the Haywood House is one of just two examples in Raleigh. A substantial addition dates to 1928. Dr. Haywood was a prominent physician in Raleigh, one of several from the Haywood family of Raleigh. Private residence.

Date: 1916
