Abstract:
Located at the corner of Second and Dock Streets, high on a terraced hill that overlooks downtown Wilmington and the Cape Fear River, the de Rosset House was constructed in the 1840s for Dr. Armand de Rosset, III and his family. By 1975, the house, damaged by fire, was deteriorating badly. It was then purchased by the Historic Wilmington Foundation, which used part of the building for offices until 1996. The foundation offered it for sale with a protective covenant. Lea describes the restoration of the house and how it was put to practical use as a city club, hotel, and restaurant dining.

The late Thad and Alice Eure were well known for their restaurants, the Angus Barn and the 42nd Street Oyster Bar, but when their son was diagnosed with severe bipolar disorder, their lives took a turn. After finding few good answers to their seven-year search for help, the Eures established in 1984 the Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness, a non-profit philanthropic organization dedicated to funding breakthroughs in the treatment of mental illness. The foundation has given nearly $2 million for research and 'seed money' has leveraged an additional $89 million in federal grants at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Dorothea Dix Hospitals.
