3436 Dover Road, ca. 1928, ca. 1990, Contributing Building

Two-story side-gabled Colonial Revival house with mitered-corner weatherboard exterior, 6/6 sash,

projecting front-gabled single-story wings on either end of the house, five-panel centered front door,

partially enclosed shed-roofed front porch with multilite picture windows and weatherboard exterior. A

deed recorded in 1932 shows that Harold L. Amoss and his wife purchased this parcel from Hope

Valley, Inc., although city directories show Duke professor Amoss living in Hope Valley as early as

1931. Douglas Sprunt, also a Duke professor, purchased the house from the Amosses in 1933 and lived

here with his wife Edith until 1940 when they sold the house to Mrs. Willie Elaine Massey Mitchell, a

music teacher and apparently a widow. Mrs. Mitchell married Charles F. Hudson, a reporter for the

Durham Morning Herald around 1941. The Hudsons sold the house to Gran Uzzle and his wife in

1948. Uzzle owned the Cadillac - Oldsmobile dealership in Durham.
