The DT Ward house was constructed circa 1901 on farmland in Tyner, NC. The Ward family lived in the house for approximately sixty years. They built a small brick house next to the farmhouse; costs of heating & maintaining the big house had become more than they could handle. The 2300 square foot farmhouse sat unoccupied for forty years. DT Ward’s daughter in law kept a watch on the place and was said to have chased away looters with a shotgun more than once. The original house was completely intact when Preservation North Carolina obtained the house in the late 1990’s. It was moved & restored by contractors Alex Klausmann & Delouis Wilson. The house retains its original framing, windows, doors, flooring, ceilings, stairs, and trim, but has new up to date mechanicals and electrical systems. The DT Ward house has been featured twice in This Old House magazine.
