Designed by George Matsumoto and built in 1954, the George Poland house was originally located at 3129 Arrow Drive in Raleigh. After Poland's death in 2001, Poland's family donated the house to Preservation North Carolina.  PNC put it on the market and imposed a buyer requirement to move the house to a suitable lot. In 2002, Don DeFeo moved the house to rural Durham County (Bahama) and substantially reconstructed / renovated the house with Ellen Cassily. A basement apartment was added to the original floorplan.
