Queen Anne Folk Victorian Houses of Wrightsville

These Queen Anne style Folk Victorians always catch my eye when I’m in Wrightsville. Finding this many located near each other is quite unusual and therefore notable. It certainly invites further study. They were likely all built by the same builder.

The houses are in varying states of repair; the one seen below is the least modified. Another such house, which I didn’t photograph, has been updated with vinyl siding.

Thanks to Deborah Brantley for the identification. Guy Singletary also notes that it closed about four years ago and that some of the members now attend Wrightsville United Methodist Church. Many thanks to David Frey, whose wife Deanne once attended this church, for the following interior shots he made in 2012.
