Above is what has come to be called the "Sallie Martin House."

The following is from An Inventory of Historic Architecture: Caswell County, North Carolina, Ruth Little-Stokes (1979

"Photo 328. Sallie Martin House. Early 19th century. 1.5-story Federal brick-and stucco house with four exterior end brick chimneys. Considerably altered, but retains eave moldings, 9/9 sash."

This house was named for Sallie D. Walker Martin (1882-1968). She was the daughter of Levi Walker and Margaret Walker Walker. Sallie D. Walker married William C. Martin (c.1867-1968), and they had at least one child: Mary Margarette Martin (1905-1991).
