Terri Thornton writes: As the proprietor of this home, I was thrilled to see it posted on Facebook and your website. We just had the front porch floors and rails re-inforced and replaced old rotting wood this past summer. We have found a lot of surprises when we take on a project, but the surprises only makes us love the home more. We purchased this house in 1989 from Dot McCommons. She and her husband raised 2 daughters in this home. She also was a secretary at the high school and her husband was a partner in McCommons Big Store. Miss Dot established a lovely rose garden in the side yard. Several of the rose bushes have died but we still try to maintain as much as we can. I researched the Circa date on this home several years ago and it dates back to somewhere around the late 1890’s and early 1900’s. Greensboro Historic District, National Register of Historic Places
