The William Eli Taylor House: 1892

Record #:
Investigating the architecture and history of the William Eli Taylor House in Martin County has provided to important research opportunities. First, the house offers a test case for a theory of folk architecture, the hypothesis that the English hall-and-parlor house was modified by North Carolinians to fit their New World environment. Secondly, looking at the evolution of the house and the social, economic, and familial factors affecting that evolution presents a rich study of ancestry.
