    This was my home from 1991 to 2002. Glad to see it featured here! Some history: The house was owned by Mr. and Mrs. E. Stewart Cole, who moved into it as newlyweds when it was new. Mr. Cole died in 1964 and Mrs. Cole continued to live there until 1991, when she moved to a retirement home. She lived in the home almost seventy years! It was interesting to hear how proud she was as a new householder of her modern coal furnace and water heater. In the '50s she cared for her mother-in-law, Mrs. L.G. Cole, there, making the dining room into a bedroom and adding a small bathroom to the rear. After Mr. Cole died, Mrs. Cole rented the upstairs bedrooms to Rice Diet patients. She was a very nice and dignified lady.

From the 1985 North Durham-Duke Park NR:

Small, two story, steep gable roofed cottage. Eaves at side flush with gable ends. Large shed roof dormer across almost entire length of house. Nice exterior end chimney and weatherboard siding.
