The Baptist Men’s group from First Baptist Church will be at Nadal House Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon to demolish the deck.

Nadal House is the Western stick bungalow on Nash Street recently purchased by Preservation of Wilson.

The organization is getting help from many volunteers as it gets the house in shape for a new owner.

The Nadal House, circa 1916, is located at 1007 Nash St. NW.

Saturday’s event is one of four that is planned.

On Wednesday, Barton College students will be sprucing up the interior of The Nadal House as part of the annual Barton Day of Service. Thursday is called “Barton Day-After.” Work will continue from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Volunteers are needed Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to noon to finish up the painting and more.

The National Register has listed the Nadal House as a contributing structure in the West Nash Historic District and is one of the finest of only a handful of Western stick style bungalows built in Wilson. Like several other bungalows, its use of granite for the porch and chimneys was done by Oliver Nestus Freeman (1882–1955).

This house will be available for sale soon. If you have an interest to learn more about purchasing the Nadal House, contact Preservation of Wilson at kfb@preservationofwilson.com or 252-234-7694. To keep current on the house status visit www.preservationofwilson.com.
