116 Rainsford Road

By John Ellis

This article was originally published in the Winter 2005 edition of the Triangle Topics newsletter.

Lil Rowe tells us that Mr. and Mrs. Archie Wilson bought 116 Rainsford Road the year it was built, in 1913, and lived there until about 1968. Mr. Wilson died in 1969. Mrs. Wilson went to live in a nursing home, where she lived until she died in 1975. The house was then rented for a time, followed by a succession of seven owners to the present day.
