The Charles O. Robinson House

The Charles O. Robinson House, nestled in the heart of Elizabeth City, North Carolina, stands as a testament to the architectural grandeur of the late 19th century. This majestic residence, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, exudes charm and sophistication, showcasing the craftsmanship and elegance of its era.

This monumental Neo-Classical Revival style home was built in 1913 by Joseph P Krammer and designed by Herbert W Simpson as a wedding present from William Benjamin Blades to his daughter Ivy (Blades) Robinson and husband Charles Oakley Robinson. The magnificent private residence stayed in the Robinson family until recently when it was sold to the current owners.

Situated directly across the street from the Pasquotank County Courthouse, the Robinson House is dominated by a two-story Corinthian portico with paired fluted columns. A one-story porch with a bowed entrance bay fits beneath the portico and wraps around the east and west sides of the house.

The trabeated entrance is enriched with Corinthian pilasters and a modillion cornice. Many pedimented crossgables and dormers enliven the hip roof. As you step through the front door, you're greeted by a spacious central hall that whispers tales of bygone days where the focal point is the elegant staircase featuring turned balusters.

The oak floors with decorative inlaid mahogany bands at the perimeters will guide you throughout the front rooms that feature paneled wainscots, impressive boxed and mold cornices.

Each room within the Robinson House tells its own story.
