Level II. Demolition or relocation of noncontributing structure

Demolition and removal of two-story, single-family residence at 115 James Agee Street.

Site Info
Vernacular Victorian (c.1900)

Two-story frame residence with a side-gable rofo clad in asphalt shingles, an exterior of brick veneer, and a brick foundation. A hipped-roof porch extends the length of the east elevation, with the right half enclosed with non-historic siding and windows. Interior central brick chimney.

1. The house at 115 James Agee Street is noted as non-contributing in the July 2000 Fort Sanders NC Overlay Designation Report. It was included as a contributing structure to the National Register Historic District (written in 1977). The house has received several campaigns of inappropriate alterations over the years, including replacement non-historic windows, an enclosed porch, and non-historic brick veneer siding. Demolition of structures designated non-contributing in the initial overlay designation report is appropriate under the guidelines.
