Landmark Details: An outstanding example of the Bungalow style, this picturesque cottage with its rough stone foundation, columns and chimney is the only one of its type in Wilson. The house features a rolled-edge clipped gable roof punctuated by eyebrow dormers. A porte cochère accesses the side of the house, and stuccoed gables feature half-timbering. The Flemings were early pioneers in bright leaf tobacco (which eventually led to Wilson being the World’s Largest Bright Leaf Tobacco Market in the 1920s), and instrumental in the construction of a WPA baseball stadium named in his honor, Fleming Stadium.
