Family History

This c.1911 Colonial Revival is located in the Weldon Historic District. It was the home of Henry Lee Grant (1878-1961) in the 1910s to the 1930s. Henry was a railroad agent for the Atlantic Coast Line for 50 years. He lived in this home with his first wife Cora Pair Grant (1879-1922), daughter Hazel, mother-in law Margaret Pair and brother-in-law James Pair, a retail merchant for a grocery store.

After the death of Cora in 1922, Henry married Margaret Bicknell Green Grant in 1940, and moved into her home down the street at 309 Sycamore St. in Weldon.  That house was an Aladdin Kit House called the Pomona. It created quite a stir in the neighborhood when it was delivered by boxcar in pieces in 1919.

    Wow! The owner has already done the hard part. Removing plaster from lath is really really labor intensive, and then cleaning all of it up and hauling it away is 80% of the restoration. It wouldn’t take much at all to bring this beauty back to life.

  • Melinda

    Why did they put new windows in such a beautiful old house? Did they save them? They removed all the plaster? 😢😢


    I’d love to at least be a part of getting this house to where it should be. I love it and feel that no matter how much work there is to do, it will be worth it.

    I wish the lot was bigger my first house was haunted and part of the underground railroad in Ohio. I had no issues with my 2 ghosts that I knew of. AfterI left abusive husband, he had a Priest come in and perform an Exorcism on the house. I guess they did not like just him as much. I felt they protected me.

  • Heather Jacobs Sanderson

    I just love it. The walls ! Grandpa was a good carpenter. I saw a few ghosts. ,😱

    The woodwork is just amazing. The staircase, built-ins, old doors and floors and trim are begging to be brougth back to their former beauty. I wish it had a bigger lot and they wouldn’t have torn out the plaster
