Landmark Details: One of Wilsonís finest Colonial Revival houses, the 2-story brick home was designed by Charles Colin Benton and built by brick mason John Barnes for Camillus L. Darden. Camillus was the son of Charles Darden, the first black undertaker in North Carolina. He operated Wilsonís only franchises for Victor talking records [Victrola] and Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The house features arched floor-to-ceiling windows flanking the front door and a columned entry porch with a roof balustrade. It is currently used as the meeting house of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.
