North Carolina's second most famous house after Biltmore. From left to right, some of the many kids who loved it: Smitty, Ginny, Bev, Pam, and Marty in a photo by

America's brilliant mid-century Modernist houses are livable works of art
sadly torn down in record numbers, largely because buyers, sellers, and realtors do
not realize the importance of what they have or how to preserve, repair, and protect these
houses. You cannot save something without knowing where it is or why it is important.
USModernist is an award-winning nonprofit 501C3 educational archive for the documentation, preservation, and promotion of residential Modernist architecture.With four major sections, 7,500
houses, and nearly 3,000,000 pages of 20th-cenutry architecture magazines, USModernist is America's largest open digital archive of Modernist
houses and their architects.
