New Bern, Craven County
100 block Middle St., New Bern, NC
The large brick residence with Colonial Revival details was built for prominent businessman Eby and originally stood at 222 Broad Street. It was moved in 1985 to save it from demolition. As Sandbeck notes, family tradition states that it replicated a house Mrs. Eby had admired in Savannah. Notably, plans and a rendering of this design appear on the title page of Wilburn's "Ideal Homes of Today."
