Note:

The house was built for a local schoolteacher, and tradition says it used stones gathered by her students. Attribution to the Wright Brothers is quite feasible, especially since at least William was living in Brevard at the time it was built. It shares much of the simplified Tudor-Arts and Crafts character of the Orr House.
