L.M. Edwards, M.D., had this Foursquare with deep box cornices and a one-story wraparound porch constructed in the early 1920s. Dr. Edwards occupied the house until the early 1960s. The most notable feature of the house is the proliferation of stained glass in all of the windows on the main facade. According to local tradition, the materials for the house, including the stained glass windows, were salvaged from Brodie L. Duke's house when it was dismantled to make room for construction of Durham High School.
