Reputedly the seeond house of W.H. McAllister, built in 1925.    Brick Foursquare fronted by a Mission style curvilinear parapet centered on hip roof.  Stone lintels top the nine-over-one paired windows with keystones on the first-story. A full-facade porch contains classically detailed box posts on stone·piers and paired curved brackets in the eaves.


When I left home in 1969 I lived here. If my memory serves me well. It was a rooming house then. Many of these large homes on Watts Street were rooming houses for folks coming for the Rice Diet at Duke. In the room next to mine was a cowboy. A rodeo rider, the first real cowboy I ever met. Not there much but a really nice guy and our landlady was an older woman and a true sweetheart. I hope I have the right house. I will Google Map Watts Street to be sure and correct this if I am in error.
