1705 Princess St.
The stuccoed house with broad eaves roof exemplifies Stephens’s Prairie Style influence. It was built for Mary Bridgers, who was listed in the 1909 Wilmington city directory as residing at this address. She built several houses for speculative purposes, and in some cases such as this one, resided in the house for a time, then sold it. She was evidently living here in 1910 while her new home, the Bridgers-Brooks House at 1710 Market Street, was under construction.
