The Collins-Lynch House: This one-story, pyramidal-roofed, Queen Anne-style house is three bays wide and double-pile with a gabled dormer centered on the façade and a projecting gabled bay on the right (south) elevation. The house has weatherboards, one-over-one wood-sash windows, and three interior brick chimneys. There is a three-sided projecting bay window on the left (north) end of the façade under a low gable. The one-light-over-one-panel door has three-light-over-one-panel sidelights and a one-light transom. The full-width, hip-roofed front porch is supported by Tuscan columns. The house has a center-hall plan, five fireplaces, including one in the hallway, and the original kitchen is connected to the house by a partially enclosed breezeway. The house was built by banker Paul Collins for use as a family home and summer residence for his aunt who lived in Edenton. It was also the longtime home of Edwin Lynch, Clerk of Superior Court, known as "The Judge".
