1200 Hanover was one of the first two houses built in this block of Hanover Street. It was constructed by John B. McLean, a carpenter, in 1918. McLean only lived in the house for two years. He seems to disappear from the Durham record at that point - I don't know if he left town or something else happened to him.
William Flintall next lived in the house; Flintall was a janitor with the North Carolina Mutual company. He first lived in the house in 1922, and is listed in the house in 1923, 1925, and 1927.
Hanover Street, 1950 (Sanborn Map Co.)
William Flintall still lived in the house as of 1960. He died in 1983 and is buried in Beechwood Cemetery in Durham.
It appears that the house was divided into a duplex after that point, and that the second floor balcony was likely added then, as it does not appear to be original.

The exterior staircase appears to have been removed sometime between 2014 and 2017.
