Description

The Charles Harney House, built in 1853, is Elizabeth City’s only surviving 19th century brick residence. The impressive house epitomizes the reserved exterior character of the Greek Revival. In contrast, the Greek Revival interior is one of the cities finest. The front parlor and dining room are connected by handsomely paneled pocket doors contained within an extraordinary arch, which is the only one of its kind in Elizabeth City. Also unique in the city are stylish Greek Revival door and window surronds, usually only seen in high style examples. Equally fine are the mantles enhanced with Tudor aches. The stairs rise gracefully to the second story with slender turned balusters, while a cantilevered third floor stair curves dramatically from the second story.

Adapted from “On the Shores of Pasquotank”, an architectural history of Elizabeth City and Pasquotank County, by Thomas Butchko, published by the Museum of the Albemarle 1989, (page 258)
