10.29.2016 (G. Kueber)

The oldest house on North Cameron Street, the one-story, side-gabled house is three bays wide and single-pile with two gabled ells extending from the rear. The house has aluminum siding, two-over-two wood- sash windows, an interior brick chimney, and an exterior concrete-block chimney at the rear of the right (north) ell. The six-light-over-three-panel door is sheltered by a hip-roofed porch supported by decorative metal posts on a concrete slab floor. A hip-roofed porch at the rear of the left (north) ell has been enclosed with glass above an aluminum-sided knee wall. The house, typical of early twentieth-century mill housing, was constructed after 1924.

I don't think the Sanborn maps are reasonable evidence that this house was constructed after 1924, given the frequency with which houses were moved in Hillsborough. While replacement windows, a replacement porch roof, columns and floor, as well as wide aluminum siding obscure the original style of the house, it is typical of early 20th century (pre 1920) mill housing, and could have been moved to this location in the ~1930s.
