Welcome to the circa 1885-1890 Thomas House – a Historic Salisbury Foundation revolving fund project!

The Thomas House is a typical North Carolina Victorian Vernacular house with a 2-story side gable front elevation and a 1-story rear portion. The house boasts an impressive and massive 40′ long center hallway and a newly rebuilt front porch that is 36′ wide and 7 feet deep. There are 2 extra large front parlors and 2 upper front bedrooms, each with an original fireplace.

The property has been stabilized with a new roof, reconstructed front porch, and repairs made to the center hallway. Extensive restoration is still required before it is livable including some flooring, plumbing, HVAC, kitchen, and bathrooms. However the house does have a newer electrical system.

The historic Thomas House resides in an area that was a thriving part of Salisbury’s growth in the late 19th century. It was both a residential and commercial neighborhood with cotton mills and businesses built before the age of the automobile. The house is located close to Canon Park, Salisbury’s downtown with over 25 eateries, breweries, unique shops, and theatres.

The Thomas House is under historic covenants and has deed restrictions. The Historic Salisbury Foundation has saved over 125 properties utilizing their revolving fund and is celebrating over 50 years of preservation.

The Thomas House is listed under MLS 4071864.
