  • Protective covenants put in place through EPF sale in June of 2004.
  • Craftsman bungalow built by the Blackman family between 1910 and 1920.
  • Originally located on Erwin Road (where the Duke Eye Hospital now stands), this house was moved three times:
    • Moved to LaSalle Street – then Holman Road – in the mid-1960s when Duke began to expand its campus
    • Temporarily moved to Hillsborough Road in 2002, where it sat awaiting a zoning change
    • Post-rezoning approval, house was finally relocated to Lawndale Avenue.
  • Despite many moves, the bungalow has always remained part of West Durham.
