Historic Salisbury Foundation has winner for first contest

Last week, Historic Salisbury Foundation provided “before” pictures of two properties it had a role in saving. It also asked readers to answer questions about those properties as part of Contest No. 1 in a series of monthly before-and-after contests to be held throughout the foundation’s 40th anniversary year. Today, the foundation supplies the “after” pictures. Dawn Merrell responded correctly to last week’s questions about the brick commercial building, which most recently was the Wrenn House restaurant. Merrell knew that the building was originally Salisbury Female Academy, and she correctly identified its location at 115 S. Jackson St. The white house in the other photograph proved to be more of a challenge to readers. It is the 1899 John Whitehead House, now located at 120 N. Jackson St. It was built originally at 308 W. Council St. and moved to the present location in 1986. First Baptist Church donated the house to the foundation, and it once served as the foundation’s offices. Contest No. 2 will be coming sometime in March. The person with the most correct answers to contest questions over the year will receive a prize from the foundation.
