The E.L. Greene House in Yadkin College North Carolina

_

The E.L. Green House, a Gothic Revival style home occuying the most prominant lot on College Lane in Yadkin College North Carolina.  The house was built in 1890 for a wealthy tobacconist named E.L. Greene, and his family.  The photograph shows the side of the house, a false front style of windows and no entry door.

The acre lot features many trees and plants popular in North Carolina gardens in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries but not found in today’s home improvement stores.  Two Willows provide a canopy almost as tall and wide as the massive home.  White Pines and Magnolias (Fraser and Southern) provide year-round shade.  Boxwoods, Holly, Sumac, and shrubs with winter red berries surround the home and dot the yard.
