Note:

The distinctive row of narrow, 2-story Queen Anne style houses, highly characteristic of Elizabeth City’s urban fabric, was built as rental and speculative properties, some for John Allen Kramer and some for Willis N. Gregory. They were probably planned and built by J. A. Kramer’s brother Joseph P. Kramer. Their design suggests that other similar rows that distinguish Elizabeth City might have been the Kramers’ work as well.
