beginning a series of images of lost area buildings

The Eleanor Marshall House

Photo, ca. 1960, Eleanor Marshall House, NE corner Pollock and Fleet streets.
The structure known in its later years as the Eleanor Marshall House was an early-19th century two-and-one half story house with exterior-end chimneys and double front porches or "piazzas."  It stood on the northeast corner of Pollock and Fleet streets and was the long-time home of New Bern school teacher and principal Miss Eleanor E. Marshall (1884-1949). The site is now occupied by the 1960s-era parsonage of St. Mary's Free Will Baptist Church.
