The gable-front-and-wing cottage is superbly framed by the gently sloping corner lot and nicely accented by a stately Rhododendron tree. Off-street parking is provided by an existing curb-cut on Polk St.

Known as "Pullen Town", this and most other homes in the 400 block of Elm street were built by Richard Stanhope Pullen who also donated the land for NC State and Pullen Park.
