Adkins-Williams House.

Set far back on a very large lot (for Watts Hillandale - 0.69 acres,) this house is nearly hidden from the street.

Rambling, unusual Craftsman-style house with a front gable roof with a heavy front porch with two cross-gables, interiorchimneys, Queen Anne crow's-foot detail eave windows, 1-over-1 windows, a replacement door with sidelights, and asbestos shingle siding. The porch has triple arched lintels on Craftsman posts.

1925 City Directory: William R. Adkins, occupant. A later owner was D. McGregor Williams, assistant superintendent of the City Water Department, who lived here until his death in the late 1970s.

I would be really interested in seeing them!  

Is this house vacant? Does anyone know the status? I happened to ride by this week. It is very overgrown (even more than the photo) and is looking very unloved. It should be on the endangered Durham list, if it's not already.

I would love to see early pictures of this house. The line of ten trees intrigues me. I often stop at this address on my bike rides and just stare and imagine
