Celebrate summer and the signing of an easement agreement with Preservation Forsyth at the historic William Henry and Sarah Hauser Speas House. This wonderful house is located in western Forsyth County, approximately eleven miles northwest of downtown Winston-Salem, and three-and-a-half miles west of the community of Pfafftown. The house and several outbuildings were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the fall of 2018.
The William Henry and Sarah Hauser Speas House, built c. 1850 as a two-story, Greek Revival style brick I-house, it was enlarged in 1879 with a two-story, gabled brick wing on the west elevation. The house retains a high level of material integrity including loadbearing brick walls and gable end brick chimneys, a compatible standing-seam metal roof, four-over-four and six-over-six double-hung wood-sash windows, and front and east side porches, each with hipped standing-seam metal roofs on turned posts.
