78. House (FY 1575)

613 N. Broad Street
Contributing, ca. 1905

EB JonesThis type of I-house is a common late nineteenth-early twentieth century house form in Piedmont North Carolina, but is rare in the West End. It is a simple two-story frame house, three bays wide and one room deep, with a hip roof, a hip-roofed front porch with turned posts, a plain balustrade, and a plain frieze, and a one-story rear ell. In recent years the house was covered with aluminum siding, but this change has not greatly affected its architectural integrity.

Like its neighbors  (75, 76, and 77), this house has been, for most of its years, rental property of Judge Erastus Beverly Jones and his heirs. They owned it from 1902 to 1978. (TR, SM)
