 A historic home located near Tarboro, Edgecombe County, North Carolina. The frame dwelling dates to the mid-19th century, and is a two-story cubicle house sheathed in weatherboard with a hipped roof. The vernacular Greek Revival interior features extraordinary painted decoration in the entrance and stairhalls. The decoration is attributed to Edward Zoeller, a Bavarian fresco painter, who also decorated the Redmond-Shackelford House. Also on the property is a contributing outbuilding.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984
