    My maternal grandmother was a girl in the early 1900s when this house was built. She remembered taking lunch to her father while he was helping to build it. The Gregory family lived there until the 1970s.

    I am the business manager of Agape' Corner Boarding School in Durham, NC.  I am looking for anyone who is familiar with the exact year the Rowland-Gregory House at 1402 Holloway Street was built.  Please email me with this information asap.  I would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you.

    You know, Mark, you can pay people to research that information for you- or at least offer a better business proposition than "do favor for me asap for unstated reasons and nothing in return."

Rowland-Gregory House, late 1960s

(Courtesy Durham County Library)


1402 Holloway, 1980

Below in italics per the Historic Inventory - not verified for accuracy by this author:

The principal stylistic elements of the two-story hip-roofed house consist of Doric columns supporting the wraparound porch and porte cochere, a Palladian window in the attic dormer on the main facade, and the pedimented gables of the shallow wings on the side elevations. Retaining its original tall chimneys and slate roof, the house is prominently situated on a very large corner lot and surrounded by mature hardwoods.

William B. Rowland, bookkeeper with Blackwell's Durham Tobacco Company, who lived here in 1912, probably had the house built. Mrs. Mary F. Rowland resided here in 1925. The Bonnie M. Gregory family, owners of the Rite-Way Laundry on Angier Ave., are listed here by 1930. They lived here for many years. [1912 CD; Roberts, Durham A &HI, 87]

The house has been remuddled a good bit since that time. It appears it came under ownership of the Agape School in 1986, so presumably the school did it. Such would seem confirmed by their recent Home Depot-esque garish remodel of the house at 1217 Holloway - otherwise known as the red-roof-you-can-see-from z=15 on Google Maps.
