H. Spurgeon and Neola Boyce House

3719 Hope Valley Road, ca. 1958, Contributing Building

One-and-a-half-story, side-gabled, brick Ranch house with Colonial Revival elements, like the columned small gabled entry porch on the front-gabled bay; single-story side-gabled sunroom at north end; hip-roofed garage wing at south end; 6/9 sash; and pierced brick walls at front and side yards. The 1959 city directory is the first volume to list this address, showing H. Spurgeon Boyce, president of Boyce Supply and Buildwell Products, Inc., and his wife Neola as the owners. Boyce Supply company ran a full-page advertisement in the 1959 city directory, boasting that the company specialized in metal windows and doors. The shop was at 704 Ramseur Street; the Boyces moved from 1507 Alabama Avenue.
