Abstract:
This article examines the architecturally distinguished Cupola House of Edenton and the steps taken to preserve the house. Built by Richard Sanderson in the 1720s, the house was a blend of Jacobean and early Georgian styles. After the house came into the possession of Dr. Samuel Dickinson in 1777, it remained in his family until 1918. In 1918, then owner Tillie Bond sold the first floor woodwork to the Brooklynn Museum to the community's outrage. A grass roots movement was organized by local residents to purchase the house and preserve it as a historic site.
