The James S. Manning House is a registered Durham Historic Landmark that provides the homeowners a 50% reduction in annual property taxes.
Preservation Durham awarded Plaque No 15 to the James Manning House, 911 N Mangum St.
Built in 1880 for James S Manning, 911 N Mangum was built in the new Queen Anne style recently brought to the US from England after Reconstruction was over.
Queen Anne style features multiple gables, irregular windows, high ceilings, and wraparound porches. Pocket doors, elaborate woodwork, and intricate ceiling medallions are found throughout the home.
James S Manning was an attorney who rose through the political scene becoming a Judge, then State Senator, and finally served as Attorney General for North Carolina.
In 1987 the home served as the location for Annie Savoy's house in Bull Durham, played by Susan Sarandon. The house was chosen by the crew because it was beautiful and stood empty. In the 90's the home was restored to its glory by the previous owners.
