Note:

The symmetrical Colonial Revival-Georgian Revival house of red brick is attributed by family tradition to a Goldsboro architect; John David Gullett is believed to have been the only architect practicing in Goldsboro at that time, and he may well have designed this handsome residence. The house remained in the Taylor family for many years; whether any architectural records survive is an open question.
