Monday 25 June 2012: Houses of Wilmington #23
Martin-Huggins House (1870)
This house (up close, a bit on the shabby side) on 412 Market Street, about 3 blocks from the Cape Fear River is one of the French Second Empire houses that remain in Wilmington and it is the only one that has not been altered. Martin was a commission merchant whose daughter married one of the famous blockade runners. It was later sold to George Huggins who was the jeweler, on the three generations of Huggins, who inspected the watches of the personnel of the Atlantic Coastline Railroad.
Please check out my back blips from New York this past weekend.
