Then, as a result of itchy feet and wanting to get out of administrivia, enter the classroom and so forth, was asked about the possibility of moving to what was then WC [Woman’s College]. And I had no idea of doing this. And then I was asked, ‘Well, please come down during the spring holidays and visit us.’ So I did come down for that interview, and Greensboro being dogwood city, I was overwhelmed. My wife took one look and we agreed: this is not quite the Garden of Eden, but dogwoods were in bloom and that did it, along with the magnetism of Curry School [campus laboratory school], which was then pretty much at its peak as a very ideal place for our three youngsters.”

Among his works were the alumni hall at Oak Ridge Military Academy and the Harden Thomas Martin House on North Mendenhall Street, now Double Oaks Bed & Breakfast.
    • “When North Carolina passed an architectural practice act and began the formal registration of architects, G. Will Armfield of Greensboro was granted certificate #1 on May 15, 1915,” the N.C. State University website says. “He was one of a large number of men who were certified based on having already been in practice prior to 1915. “
    • After her husband’s death in 1927, Esther (1857-1942) bought the property from her son Hugh (1898-1992). She and, later, her daughter Minnie Myrtle Armfield (1880-1973) owned it until Minnie’s estate sold it in 1974. The Armfields had eight children, six of whom survived to adulthood.
    • Esther’s parents, Henry and Ann Wakefield, were born in England and may have been Quakers. They moved to Canada, where their nine children were born, and then to North Carolina. Along with their three youngest children, they’re buried in New Garden Friends Cemetery in Greensboro. (Esther and G. Will are in Green Hill.)

    • County records describe the house as a duplex/triplex, yet they also say it has only 1 1/2 bathrooms.
    • Originally a single-family home, it was divided up long ago in two or three units. Restoring the house to single-family could have a significant impact on the neighborhood. The house is in a prominent location on a street where several homeowners in recent years have made efforts to improve one of the scruffiest fringes of Westerwood.
    • Nothing in the minimalist Zillow listing indicates why a buyer would pay 50 percent more than the house sold for in 2017. No pictures of the interior are included. The Google Street View photo above is dated April 2019.
    • The most distinctive aspects of the house over the past few years have been a number of motorcycles consistently parked in the front yard and an equally consistent lack of yard maintenance.

  • Note: The house was built across the street and moved to its present location in the early 1920s.
    • “The two-story frame house is typical of Greensboro residences of the first decade of the twentieth century. Simply detailed, the Late Victorian form is characterized by a hipped roofline and a projecting hipped wing. This wing, with exterior access, might have served as an office. Decorative features are staid, including a deep cornice with boxed eaves, nine over nine windows, and a half-width front porch. Interior details curiously hint at an early construction date, such as capped door and window trim, a square stair newel post, and six-panel doors. The house is a special footnote for the neighborhood and represents the earliest history of Lindley Park.” — Benjamin Briggs, Preservation Greensboro
