Patterned slate and ornate brackets, window surrounds, and porch posts make this one of Raleigh's most distinctive Victorian-era houses. previously owned by the state, which restored its deteriorated exterior, the house is being converted by the North Carolina Association of Realtors, Inc. for office use and first floor venue space.
