Edwards House.

Dr. Charles w. Edwards, Professor of Physics at Trinity College and Duke University, had this house constructed in 1908. It was the second house built opposite the campus on N. Buchanan Blvd., which then was named Guess Rd.

The design of the house is eclectic, featuring neoclassical dentil cornices and Doric porch columns, latticed window sashes, and an Arts and Crafts style front door and sidelights. The central hall is paneled and has pocket doors leading to the principal rooms.
