The Raleigh Times of Nov. 30, 1925 cited the home of "Mrs. John C. Drewry" as one of Satterfield's recent works. The client was Kittie Holt Drewry, who was listed in the 1922 and 1923 city directories as Holt Drewry, widow of John C. Drewry, residing on "Cowper near Glenwood, Hayes Barton." As development in Hayes Barton continued, the western lane of Cowper was renamed Holt Drive in the mid-20s, and from 1926 onward she was listed at 815 Holt Drive. Mrs. Drewry was a member of the prominent Holt family of industrialists in Alamance County (Hayes Barton National Register nomination).The large red brick house features terra cotta roof tiles, and there is a matching garage-servants' quarters building.
