Restored grandeur: Potts-Burgaw-Duke House restoration takes 23 years

Record #:
The Potts-Burgaw-Duke house has finally concluded its 23 year restoration to return the house to the affluence and grandeur it enjoyed when it was constructed in 1870. Built by bachelor lawyer Samuel Potts, it was then purchased by Judge Burgaw, who in turn sold it to Dr. Duke and his family. By the 1980s, the home was deteriorating rapidly and finally purchased by Don Stroud, who spent 23 years restoring the house to a level of splendor not seen since the late 19th century.
