This charming Craftsman bungalow was constructed in 1923. It’s first occupants were Zollie Wardell Owens and his wife Etta. Zollie was a travelling salesman at the time they lived in this home that they shared with their eldest son Ralph and his wife Estelle, and their youngest son, Roy. The couple lived in the house briefly before returning to their native western North Carolina, by 1924 the home was occupied by John and Corrine Baker.
This home was relocated in 2011 to save it from demolition for campus expansion using contributions from the university and the 1772 Foundation. In 2016 it was sold as an investment property suitable for residents who enjoy the close proximity to UNCG. The new UNCG campus is positioned adjacent to this house to the rear. Restoration was completed at that time.
As part of efforts to revitalize the Glenwood neighborhood, the home was sold with a preservation easement to ensure that it remains a part of the neighborhood for future generations to enjoy.
