Per the NRHP nomination:

“A construction date, builder and original owner of this two-story brick house have not been determined, but it appears that William Littleton Gardner (1848-1928), a Virginia native, acquired the tract of land occupied by the house in 1900 from J.W. and Sallie B. Jennings. Mrs. Gardner and Mrs. Jennings were both Blairs, and the property may have been involved in a Blair inheritance. It is also possible that Jennings, a brick manufacturer, built the house. The lot was a large one, extending some 800 feet to the south, all the way through to Piedmont St.

“Gardner had moved to Rockingham County in 1881, and at the turn of the century located in Reidsville where he first operated a butcher shop and later ran a small grocery store on nearby Snead St.


“Like its neighbor to the east, the Gardner House is one of a small number of 19th century brick dwellings in Reidsville. Topped by a low hip roof of standing seam tin, the house features a single-pile, central hall plan with a two-story, hip-roofed and one-story, gable-roofed ells extending to the rear.

“Segmental arch openings contain two over two windows and the main entrance at the center of the three-bay facade, which is spanned by a one-story porch with bracketed turned posts. Corbeled brick chimneys are located at either side of the rear of the main block.”
