The J. Frank McCrary House, a Tudor Revival manor house, was designed by W.C. Holleyman Jr., a Greensboro architect. Construction began ca. 1933, and was completed in March, 1934. This home is said by McCrary family members to have been built for a cost of $29,000 and is located on the previous home site of N.C. Governor Jonathan Worth facing north on the corner of Worth and Main Streets. The exterior, as well as 95% of the interior of the home is original to the detailed W.C. Holleyman Jr. architectural plans which are currently located at the Acme-McCrary Corp. The rambling Tudor Revival manor house combines such decorative details of Elizabethan England as the Tudor-arched entrance with embattled hood molding, oriel windows, and casement windows with leaded glass quarrels. The English Tudor style utilizes excellent craftsmanship of locally mined slate that comprises the exterior and the roofing. The rear of the home is finished in Tudor wooden beams and stucco. Original leaded glass windows and copper guttering system remain in tact.
The exterior of the home maintains its original landscaping detail with English Boxwoods, dogwoods, holly, and hemlock.According to
