Historical or Architectural Importance

This 1 1/2 story bungalow house was built in 1932 by Adolph A.H. Zieroth. It has an asphalt gable roof and the building rests on a poured concrete foundation. In 1932 Adolph Zieroth purchased 1 1/2 acres of land from Walter S. Wilcox. Within four years this bungalow was built. Although not as old as many of the other houses in the Historic District, this early twentieth-century bungalow house plays an important role in Durham's architectural history.
