This house was built circa 1898 by Greensboro’s most prolific builder of the 1890s and early 1900s, John Straiton. It is one of the most imposing Queen Anne-style dwellings in the county. The three-story corner tower with an onion-shaped dome dominates the 2 1/2-story house. The porch, complete with a conical-roofed gazebo, wraps around the front and east sides of the house.
This house is a contributing property to the Greensboro Historic District that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is located at 1804 Main Street in Greensboro (32.70445,-87.599386 – Google Maps).
