The Richardson-Pool-Glover House is Elizabeth City’s largest antebellum home, and the only home in the city to follow the fully-developed two-story double-pile center hall plan. The house was built in the 1850s for Daniel Richardson, a local merchant. At his death, it was sold to George Decatur Pool, a wealthy farmer and philanthropist. Pool’s heirs sold it to businessman William Charles Glover, who served as mayor of Elizabeth City from 1888 to 1895. 

Built in 1856 the Richardson Pool Glover house is the third largest antebellum style home in North Carolina. It is nestled an hour from the Outer Banks of North Carolina and an hour from Hampton Roads, VA in the quaint and friendly southern town of Elizabeth City, NC. 

The house’s immense southern charm is not the only significant piece to the house as it has played a large role in local town history and North Carolina history. It has been a site for a Civil War hospital & the Underground Railroad. It also has been home to the town mayor & a local doctor who discovered the portrait of Theodosia Burr (Aaron Burrs daughter who went missing in a shipwreck).
