This is one of my favorite landmarks along U. S. Highway 17 and among the most-photographed locales on the coast highway. It was built in 1924 by Edgar Allen Poe McCarthy as a warehouse for his Tarboro Mercantile, located nearby.

Also known as the Baker-Harrell House, this was originally operated as a boarding house/hotel by G. V. Baker. One source dates it to 1890 and another to 1910.
