Originally one of several East End rental properties of the Horner family (Durham native and Trinity College/UNC alum W.E. Horner was a state politician and longtime publisher of the Sanford Herald). City directories reflect duplex occupancy from 1956, although a 1937 Sanborn Fire Insurance map clearly shows the property split into two residences. A number of renters and their families called 1201 Hazel home before it was ultimately demolished in 2016. A new single-family dwelling (below) was built in its place in 2017.
