Property History
Built by the Jones family in 1909, Congressman Walter B. Jones, Sr. was born there in 1913. He was elected to the NC legislature in 1955 and elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from 1966 until his death in 1992. Later occupants included Eugene and Halma Bruton who ran Bruton’s Food Center. Local residents remember a later occupant, possibly a renter of the Bruton’s, who kept a pet monkey in the enclosed porch room adjacent to B Street where passersby could view it. It was known as “the monkey room.”

For several years the house was the site of a successful antique shop. Located just two blocks from Fayetteville’s vibrant downtown and within view of the courthouse, it would make a fine law office or shop. The property is close to many area points of interest including the picturesque Cape Fear Botanical Garden, the Transportation and Local History Museum, and Museum of the Cape Fear.

 
Property Description
Located between the majestic Cape Fear River and beautifully restored downtown Fayetteville, the Cong. Walter B. Jones, Sr. Birthplace (also known as the Jones-Bruton House) is well situated to serve as an attractive office or retail establishment. It is located between the majestic Cape Fear River and beautifully restored downtown Fayetteville. It serves as a rare intact example of the turn of the 20th century homes built for the city’s successful merchants.

This turn of the 20th century cottage combines attractive Queen Anne and Colonial Revival detailing. Among the last few remaining turn of the 20th century houses built on Person St. for Fayetteville’s merchant class, it is notable for its retention of original features such the large 2-over-2 windows, expansive porch with Doric columns, decorative gable vents, and tall chimneys with brick corbelling. Interior features include four fireplaces with two intact mantels, high ceilings in spacious rooms, attractive tongue and groove beaded wainscot with chair rail, and wood floors throughout.

The house will require a complete rehabilitation including all new electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems. The floor system shows signs of foundation issues.

 
Additional Notes
Area Information:

Fayetteville is located in the Sandhills of NC, is the county seat of Cumberland County and is best known as the home of Fort Bragg. It was incorporated in 1783 and named in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette. It has received the All-America City Award from the National Civic League three times, and is the 5th most populous city in NC. There are many attractions, including the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens, Museum of the Cape Fear, the NC Veterans Park and the Fayetteville Area Transportation and Local History Museum. Fayetteville is only about an hour from Raleigh, 90 minutes from Wilmington and less than 2 hours to many of the beautiful beaches along the coast.
