It's no secret that I'm a a huge fan of Gothic Revival architecture. So naturally this house caught my eye. The fact that it was brick made it even more interesting since they are more rare finds.
William Absolum Fields (1847-1923) was a moderately prosperous man. He served
in the Civil War and returned to become a manufacturer of plug tobacco. He was married in 1882 to Annie Caroline Tucker of Pleasant Garden. They had five children, three sons and two daughters. There is no record that he was involved in politics or civic leadership, but he was a faithful member of Centenary Methodist Church for many years. He died of pneumonia on May 2, 1923, at age 76. Field's purchased land from Shields in July 1875 for $550.00 and built this house shortly after. In 1906, Field's sold the house to E. L. Stamey. Stamey in turn sold it to H. F. Starr in 1908. Starr sold the house to the Centenary Methodist Church in 1908 for $4,500.00. It was used as the church's parsonage for many years. There are still members of this church who have fond memories of weddings, parties, and church gatherings in the house. In 1943, the house was sold to Jessie and Annie Huffiness who sold it to Hoyt Edwards in 1960 . In 1979, Carol Johnson, an antique dealer and interior decorator, bought the house from Edwards to house her business. She recognized the historic and architectural significance of the house and rescued it from it's decaying state. She made improvements, not all in accord with standard preservationist techniques, and opened her shop in 1980. It was soon found to be economically impractical so it stood vacant again for several years. The Old Greensboro Preservation Society was a nonprofit organization focused on the preservation of the historic core of the city. They adopted the Fields House as their headquarters in 1984, placing the property on the National Register of Historic Places a year later. In 2009, a Greensboro developer restored the house and it has been used as office space since.

Sharing you an excerpt of its local song entitled: “Newfoundland Party” by unknown artist. “It's a party for all and we're all for a party, It's a Newfoundland way - it's too late when we're gone; Bring your own drop of stuff and if that's not enough, There's music and dancing from moonlight till dawn.” #oceansidecabin#twillingate#mainstreet#newfoundland#aftersunset#nature#folkballads#travel#awhipofsas#pinayincanada🇨🇦 #culture#nature#ohwowcanada#ohwowtwillingate
