~1957-1958 (Spotlight, HHS yearbook)

The hipped roof Transitional Victorian at 312 W. Tryon was likely built between 1900 and 1920; the picture above shows it in the background of a Hillsborough High School photograph in 1958. Around 1956, a minimal traditional / transitional ranch house was built at the northwest corner of this lot - it appears that it would not have displaced the above house on the site, so they likely co-existed for some period of time before the house above was demolished. Steps from the southeast corner of the lot to the street indicate the one-time presence of the earlier house near the front of the lot.

Set back on a deep lot, this house has been significantly altered with the construction of a replacement porch. The one-story, hip-roofed house is three bays wide and double-pile with some unpainted weatherboards and some aluminum siding. It has eight-over-eight wood-sash windows and a replacement shed-roofed porch on the fac╠žade is supported by square posts and enclosed with screens. County tax records date the building to 1956 and the front porch was added in 1997.
