First subdivided circa 1910, this property was part of the Herbert Lloyd Property.

Built circa 1945. From 1950 to 1955 the structure was owned by the Uzzle Motor Company (a Durham based automobile dealership).
 
Then it was The Chapel Hill News Leader Co., Inc. (publishers) and The Chapel Hill News Leader (the newspaper) building. It ceased publication in 1959.

In 1959 it became The News, Inc. (publishers) and The News of Orange (the newspaper) building. The News, Inc. also published The Daily Tar Heel.

Luckily in 2014 the Carrboro Board of Aldermen approved a loan for "facade improvements to the front of the building/porch addition." See how pretty it is now?
