About

Now headquarters of Preservation North Carolina, these houses (connected by a basement after being resited) are two of five Oberlin Neighborhood structures individually listed on the National Register. Both are exuberant, Queen Anne-style houses built to impress. Rev. Hall was the first pastor of Oberlin Baptist Church; Willis Graves was a bricklayer, officer of Wilson Temple United Methodist Church and justice of the peace. Both builders had been born into slavery. Spurgeon Fields, longtime employee of newspaperman Josephus Daniels, later purchased the Graves House.
