    The Durham Architectural and Historic Inventory indicates this house was built in the mid nineteenth century and subsequently remodeled in the 1920's. The main level is completely paneled in dark wood, possibly pine, including the doors, but upstairs the bi panel doors and plaster remain. The basement masonry appears to date from the 1920's renovation, perhaps replacing brick or stone piers. The huge boxwood's that line the drive are indicators of the age of this home, as noted in the DAHI. The home is for sale 9/30/2014.

This farmhouse, built in 1920, was once home to world renowned scientist Norman Garmezy. Garmezy and his family lived here throughout the 1950s. 

Garmezy did ground-breaking mental health research on risk factors, competence and resilience in children and adults with scizophrenia. Garmezy’s work helped psychologists and practitioners understand the positive human potential.

I wish I knew more about the early history of this house. It is one of many farm houses still left along this stretch of Hope Valley, surrounded by neighborhoods now.
