Brick pyramidal cottage with 3 chinmeys, random conmon bond brick walls, segmental-arched openings, a glazed front door, and tall 9/1 sash windows with slate sills. The engaged wraparound porch has plain brick posts. The rear ell has a recessed side porch. Myrick had the house built with brick salvaged from a tobacco warehouse in 1916. In 1930 Myrick was a salesman with Hessee Fumiture Co. His daughter, Frances Myrick Howard, owned and occupied the house until the late 1990s. [1921, 1930 CD; interview; Durham Co. DB 49, 445]


My grandfather built this house and I lived there from birth through college (1948-1970).  I am very proud and pleased with the job that the new owners have done with the rennovation and rehab of the home.  Most impressive.  Thanks.
