    Does Durham just tear down things when they feel like it and never have a plan to rebuild anything?

    The black and white photos were taken on March 17, 1979 as part of a survey conducted by the NC Historic Preservation Office. This house was built and owned by Frank George Sowell (notice that his surname graces a north/south running street just to the west of the property), using hand-made cast stone blocks. The surveyors in 1979 noted that the Sears Block Machine was still in the shed. A tree fell onto the eastern portion of the house's roof sometime around spring/summer of 2010, creating quite a big hole. The house was pretty big: 2430 square feet with 5 bedrooms, according to the tax report.

    My family rented from Frank Sowell at 1510 E. Pettigrew Street from around 1962-1968. Our house was located on the vacant lot in the picture.
