1935 - The Howard Gamble House, 1307 North Mangum Street, Durham NC. Mrs. Gamble was the daughter of Richard Dillard, who built both this house and the one next door. The architect was Ronald Greene of Greene and Rogers of Asheville NC. The floor plan was unusual for its time: the kitchen was in the front of the house and public living areas at the back. Featured in 1939 American Homes. The house was sold to a doctor in the 1950s who imposed an unfortunate exterior renovation involving Permastone (second photo), which was later removed. The house was abandoned in the 1970s. Sold in 1977 to Gerard Tempest who restored it and the adjacent Dillard House. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Sold to his son and daughter in law, Husidio John Tempest and Anne Marie O'Donnell Tempest. Went into foreclosure. Sold in 2012 to Mark D. Hazelrigg and Charlene M. Reiss. They received a 2013 Pyne Award from Preservation Durham for a restoration by Svara Restoration.
