1710 Market St.
Tony P. Wrenn, Wilmington, North Carolina: An Architectural and Historical Portrait (1984)
One of the grand mansions that define the 1700 block of Market Street, the house features a monumental, full-width portico of Roman Doric columns. It was begun in 1910 for Mary Bridgers, Stephens’s patroness and the developer of Carolina Heights, who likely intended to make her home there. Tony P. Wrenn cites the house as probably designed by Stephens. Miss Bridgers fell while visiting the unfinished house, suffering injuries that led to her death on November 10, 1910. J. W. Brooks bought the property and finished the house.
