The M.J. Best House

302 South John Street, Goldsboro, NC 27530, USA
TBD

Description

Built in 1894 by Marcellus J. Best, a prominent business leader, the M.J. Best House is an important Victorian structure. Preservation North Carolina will be working to stabilize this important house and correct damage by previous owners. Its loss would have been detrimental to PNC’s ongoing neighborhood revitalization efforts. PNC has repaired the foundation and removed incompatible later additions of poor construction. We are raising funds to construct an addition that will return the house to its original size and provide space for bathrooms, closets and kitchens. We have also identified the ghostmarks of the original, much smaller porch, and we are working to raise funds to recreate the earlier porch which will restore the house to its original appearance. Here in the South, we all know that life is better on the porch. Help us “put back the porch” on the M.J. Best House by making a donation to Preservation North Carolina!

Contact us if you or someone you know is interested in purchasing this diamond in the rough.
