506 Craven St., New Bern, NC
Peter B. Sandbeck, The Historic Architecture of New Bern and Craven County, North Carolina (1988).
The original interiors of the 18th century house survive despite extensive updating to the exterior in the late 19th century. Dendrochronology study would be valuable here. Sandbeck reports that it was built for Henry Smith, who bought the vacant lot in 1772 and sold the property to Thomas Webber in 1782 for a substantial price indicative of a building there. Gertrude Carraway states that Coor built the house at this address for Thomas Webber, and John D. Whitford, who lived in the house years later, also attributed its construction to Coor. It was evidently Whitford who remodeled the exterior of the house.
