WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — On this year’s Historic Home Tour, you will find a home that did not always stand at 213 N. 6th St. The Parmele-Williams House built in 1849 was saved by the Historic Wilmington Foundation and moved from N. 3rd St. in 1997.

Its current owner Chuck Black says the home burned, but was rebuilt with all the original woodwork.

He says what makes the home really unique is all of the old architectural features.

“There’s lots of things about our house that’s really different, like the original kitchen has its own fireplace and the original fireplace where they cooked all the meals here, and that was the only thing they had to cook on,” Black said.

Other cool features are grates for ventilation throughout the home and an old fuse box.

The Historic Home Tour is Saturday and Sunday. Click here for ticket information.
