(Below in italics is from the National Register listing; not verified for accuracy by this author.)

Like the neighboring, one-and-a-half-story, side-gabled houses at 212 and 216 South Occoneechee Street, this house may have been constructed as mill housing for the nearby Newport Manufacturing Company. The house is three bays wide and double-pile with a concrete-block foundation, vinyl siding, six-over-six wood- sash windows, and a 5V metal roof with an interior brick chimney. The off-center entrance indicates that the house may have originally had two entrances on the fac╠žade, both sheltered by the near-full-width, shed-roofed porch supported by square posts. There is a replacement front door with a single, diamond-shaped light and a replacement garden window on the left (south) elevation. There is a single window in each gable. County tax records date the building to 1921.
