The 3-story house of Flemish bond brickwork, accented by brownstone trim, is the most imposing Greek Revival residence surviving in New Bern. It is attributed to carpenter-builder Hardy B. Lane based on similarities with other work in town—especially his documented Griffin Free School. The brickmason for the fine brickwork remains unidentified. It is likely that many other antebellum buildings with similar woodwork were Lane’s as well.
