This beautiful Queen-Anne House was located at the northwest corner of Roxboro and Liberty Streets (across from the current location of the main library.) It was representative of the quality of architecture located in this neighborhood from the late 19th century until the 1960s.
It was taken and demolished as part of the Federal Urban Renewal program.
