McDougall-Ogsbury House

3730 Hope Valley Road, 1927, Contributing Building

Stately two-story, side-gabled, weatherboard Colonial Revival house with classical entrance sheltered under a gabled portico with Tuscan columns and segmental barrel-arch roof; flat-roofed screened side porch at south side; flat-roofed single-story wing at north side; 6/6 and 8/8 sash. An advertisement in the Durham Morning Herald on November 27, 1927, noted that the house was complete and Dr. William McDougall had already occupied it. William and Mary Ogsbury lived here in 1938 and possibly as early as 1931, according to listings in the city directories. William Ogsbury was a manager at the American Tobacco Company.
