806 Hay St., Fayetteville, North Carolina

Photo 

Built in 1897 by textile industrialist Walter L. Holt, the Colonial Revival style of the Holt-Harrison helped set the standard for dwelling built in Haymount, an upscale suburb of Fayetteville. Holt helped establish four textile mills in Fayetteville, which contributed to a period of great local prosperity at the turn of the century. Jesse Harrison, former mayor of Fayetteville, would later become an owner of the home. The Holt-Harrison House has more recently been used for commercial purposes.
