Contractor Connie H. Shipp built this house for his family in the 1910s; his daughter continued to live in it into at least the 1980s. As a mason, Shipp worked on many of Durham's important structures including Trinity Park's Watts St. Baptist Church and the King's Daughters Home. Asyrrnnetrical in form, this two-story Neo-colonial house sheathed in German siding has a center hall plan. A pedimented dormer and corbelled chimney stack punctuate the cross-gabled roof. A full-facade porch with tapered box posts on brick plinths wraps to the south side where it is enclosed.
