Typical of post-World War II construction, this one-story, side-gabled, Minimal Traditional house is three bay wide and double-pile with aluminum siding, vinyl windows, and an interior brick chimney. The six-panel door, centered on the façade, is sheltered by a front-gabled porch supported by decorative metal posts with metal brackets and a metal railing. A picture window is located to the left (east) of the entrance. An entrance on the rear (south) elevation is sheltered by an aluminum awning. County tax records date the house to 1955 and the earliest known occupant is Willie Day, a tobacco worker at American Suppliers, and his wife, Willie L. Day, operator of Rose Beauty Shop, in 1960.  According to the 1960 City Directory, Rose Beauty Shop was located at 1226 Fayetteville Street.

On April 26, 1955, W.H. Olive and his wife, Josephine sold this lot to Willie Day and his wife, Willie L. Day.  The house was constructed and occupied in early 1959.  After Mr. Day's death, Mrs. Day sold the house to Mary P. Lyon on October 27, 1980.  Ms. Lyon lived in the house until she sold it to Geraldine Burroughs and Earline E. Green on October 27, 1994.  On February 20, 2006, Geraldine Burrough and her husband Michale Burrough, Earline Parker and her husband, Kenneth Parker, sold the property to Jacqueline McKeithan-Foster.

Since Ms. McKeithan-Foster has owned the property, several tenants have rented this property as she never resided there.
