Yanceyville Mystery House

This Yanceyville house sits across the street from the Harrelson Funeral Home on property believed to be owned by the Watkins family. It is beside Blackwell's Florist and Gift Shop (formerly Buddy and Oldham Terrell's service station).

It is described as follows in An Inventory of Historic Architecture: Caswell County, North Carolina, Ruth Little-Stokes (1979) at 202:
Photo 325. House. ca. 1890. 1.5-story frame late Victorian cottage with interior brick chimney, two front doors, and crossetted door and window surrounds.
While it apparently no longer has the two front doors, this is believed to be the same house.

What is the history? Who built it? Who lived there?

Please share your information here or by sending a message to the CCHA.
