Salvation Army Building
James B. Lynch, architect
Front Street Inn
Wilmington, New Hanover County
215 S. Front St., Wilmington, NC
The eclectic blend of Dutch colonial gables and Italianate brackets distinguishes the 2-story red brick building. The Wilmington Morning Star of December 4, 1922, noted that it would have nine rooms with “accessory quarters and baths”; there were separate quarters for the resident manager. The Wilmington Dispatch reported on December 4, 1922, that Lynch’s plans had been forwarded to the Salvation Army headquarters in New York for approval. According to the Carolina Mountaineer and Waynesville Courier of December 6, 1923, the plans were completed in April 1923, but because of delays in fundraising, not until early December was the contract about to be let.
