Recently a house at 850 Concord Road in Davidson was demolished. The ca. 1945 Tudor Revival/Period Cottage was a contributing resource to the town’s National Register Historic District. In Charlotte in the historic Eastover neighborhood, the J.E. Butterworth House at 214 Cherokee Road was recently demolished. The ca. 1925 Colonial Revival-inspired house was designed by prominent Charlotte architect Martin Boyer. The original plans are available as part of the Martin Evans Boyer Papers, held by J. Murrey Atkins Library Special Collections at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. It appears that either the original plans were altered, or that significant changes to the house were made over its 96 year history.
