The one-and-a-half story house is located within the Edenton National Register Historic District. The earliest part was built 1718–19 and possibly moved to site from nearby. The house is currently owned by Steve and Linda Lane. During renovations of the house, which they were using as a rental property, the contractor discovered older hand-hewn beams within the structure. Researchers from Williamsburg and elsewhere were contacted to conduct dendrochronological research on the building.
