308 Lindsay Street

308 Lindsay Street is an intact side-gable bungalow with decorative clipped gables, a wide shed dormer window, nine-over-one sash windows, and a shed porch with brick and frame posts. Luther Hargrave, a carpenter, undertaker, and farmer, constructed it in 1920 for his daughter, Ethel Hargrave, and her husband, Edward Perry. Their daughter Velma Perry still lives here. In 1988, she provided valuable historical recollections about the neighborhood for a study sponsored by the town of Chapel Hill.

Other houses [on this block] are the trigable type and frame bungalows.
