The house was built prior to March 1911.
The property was sold in June 1905 by Laura Peckham to Harriet Morehead Berry. Then was sold by Berry in June 1919 to Sallie Thelma Hemphill.
Was the long-time residence of Sallie Markham Mitchie (i.e. the former Sallie Thelma Hemphill). Mitchie died in 1992 and left the house to the local Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapter. After suing Michie's estate, the DAR then sold the house to UNC (for $550,000), which promptly demolished it (in November/December 1995) and turned the property into a parking lot.
UNC had been trying to obtain the property since the 1950s from Mitchie, through purchase and/or eminent domain. She, however, did not want UNC to have it. It was the last private residence located on the UNC campus. Its address is now 125 but it was 121 S. Columbia Street prior to UNC obtaining it.
