The above Tudor Revival house in Sunset Hills has been building provenance since it was constructed in 1928. It has connections to Greensboro author, O.Henry; WWII combat fighter pilots, George and William Preddy; and vice-president of Jefferson Standard Life Insurance, David Buckner; and many more great, local citizens. This neighborhood is known for being neighborly; the people who have lived in this house, their relatives and guests made great memories. Some residents fell on hard times and current resident, R.S. Gingher shares stories of his house in the February 2016 edition of the Sunset Hills newsletter (pp 6-8).
The Elliot-Dodson house, as it is known, is a real beauty-- nearly 4,000 square feet on a little over a half acre. The house has been sold only three times, the last time in 1981. The current residents seem happy there. They refer to themselves as "temporal residents" keeping the home place, until it is time for the next generation to inherit the space.
