Historic Homes and Buildings
building shown in the background is the Lenoir County Courthouse,
this was taken from an old postcard, postmarked 1905

"Old Dobbers" is proud to feature a new "Historic Homes and Buildings" section to our Website

Here we will showcase photographs and or postcards of the historic architecture in and around Lenoir County, and when possible, what written history is known of the buildings.

If you have a photograph or post card of a building that you would like to see included, we will be happy to showcase it here. Please email any photo files to

Sloan Mason

along with whatever history is known to you (when the structure was built, who the owners were, the location of the structure, etc.)

Please also send a seperate email letting Tracy know the photo file has been sent. This way, if the file was to large to be delivered, she can work with you to make sure the file is received.

We hope you enjoy our Photograph Tour.

Kinston Graded School

Kinstons first public school was the Kinston Graded School, a
combined grammer and high school on east Lenoir Ave,
between North Independence and North East Streets
built on land donated by Jesse Grainger.
By 1919 Graingers weatherboarded school was replaced with
Kinstons first high school, known as Grainger School.
