c. 1840 Greek Revival

1106 Skeet Club Road
High Point, North Carolina

Mendenhall-Venable-Blair House

Beautifully restored home on 6+manicured acres with a detached 3 car garage.

In 1847 local Quaker leader Elihu Mendenhall added a large two-story eight-room addition to a simple two room Federal cottage. The addition was styled in the then popular Greek revival style of architecture. Elihu and his second wife Abigail were well regarded in the community for their hospitality as well as for their anti slavery convictions. The home remained in the Mendenhall family until 1919 when the Venebals’ bought the home for a dairy farm. In 1926 the Blair family bought the house and they continued dairy operations. The Blair family sold the house in 1993 and restoration began in 1994. Great effort was given to maintaining it’s original features which include one of the last remaining plaster ceilings in Guilford County, wide central hallways, 11-12 foot ceilings, ten fireplaces, wide heart of pine flooring, working shutters, painted wood grained doors and faux painted mantels. The layout of the first floor includes two formal parlors, master bedroom and bath, and a large dining room and den directly off the kitchen. Two of the fireplaces have gas logs. There are three bedrooms located upstairs one with access to a private bath and one that has access to a loft/play/storage area. The bath that is shared by the two bedrooms upstairs includes a freestanding tub that is original to the house. A three-car garage was added in 2009 and many of the details mimic details in the house. The six and half acres include original plantings such as boxwood, peonies, and locust, sugar maple and walnut trees. The house was designated a historic landmark property by Guilford County in 1993.
