    I'm pretty sure this is the Baker-Haigh-Nimocks House, 233 Dick St. in Fayetteville. If so, the upper windows have been replaced and the doric columns removed. The diamond shaped attic vent on the side, the number and location of windows and chimney and the distinctive fanlight over the front door are all the same. It's deteriorated quite a bit since this was taken.Fayetteville, NC Baker Haigh Nimocks House womansclubfay.org/heritage/baker-haigh-nimocks-gallery.htm

    Looks like a good match! How did you make the connection? The photographer definitely worked on this street. Your link to the Heritage Square site includes the building next door to the Nimocks House--an Oval Ball Room, which Miss Johnston photographed for a book on early North Carolina architecture. -- Helena (LOC)

    A flickr search of "fayetteville historic houses" led me to flickr user army.arch *Adam*'s photo, which names the house.
