Love-A-Landmark Party at Tar Heel Manor
February 2 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$25
Tar Heel Manor was constructed by Nellie and John C. Clapp around 1904. The original form of the house included a simple pyramidal roofline embellished with four dormer windows on each elevation. Within a few years, the house was greatly enhanced by architect Richard Gambier with a stunning new gambrel roofline. In 1938 the house was purchased by Charles Kellenberger for his daughter Ruth Kellenberger Shea. The large house accommodated Ruth and her sons, but also allowed her to rent sixteen rooms to travelers under the home’s new name: “Tar Heel Manor”. Ruth passed away around 1997 and the old house was sold to Mindy Zachary who immediately commenced a major restoration of the house that lasted through 2011. The project returned subdivided rooms to their grand size, and created dramatic new spaces in portions of the rear wing that experienced heavy alterations. The house, now saved from decay and demolition, illustrates the creative opportunities that exist in restoring Greensboro’s historic residences. The project was recognized in 2011 with a Preservation Award!
