This is the second house of Dr. William I. Cranford (704 N. Buchanan Blvd was the first); Cranford was chairman of the Durham County Board of Education as well as a Duke professor by the time he occupied this house in the late 1920s. The frame Foursquare plan is fronted by a full-facade porch with tapered box posts on brick plinths and gabled projections to the front and north side where it forms a porte-­cochere. The second story is shingled.
