Howard House -
New Bern
The James M. Howard House, built between 1888 and 1892, is one of New Bern's few surviving examples of Queen Anne influenced architecture. James M. Howard came from a family long active in the shipbuilding business, but was engaged in mercantile and business pursuits. By 1904, he was a partner with Elijah Hester in the ownership of the Farmer's Tobacco Warehouse Company. This handsome example of Victorian-period craftsmanship includes all street-facing windows upper sash are glazed with small colored glass panes surrounding a larger clear pane. The highlight of this home is the corner tower, each of its five sides glazed and having diagonal board aprons beneath each window. The present Neo-Classical front porch is a ca.1910 replacement of a smaller portico.
