Franklin Pierce Cover House Wikipedia
The Franklin Pierce Cover House is a historic house on North Carolina Route 1388 in the small town of Andrews, North Carolina. The 2-1/2 story brick Queen Anne Victorian was built in 1900, and is a remnant of Andrews' industrial heritage. The house was built by Franklin Pierce Cover, owner of a local tannery. It exhibits the complex massing typical of Queen Anne houses, with multiple gables, projections, and a massive three-story octagonal tower. Documentary photographs suggest the house once had a Queen Anne porch with brackets and an ornamental frieze, but this was replaced by a more Colonial Revival scheme with heavier Tuscan columns.
The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
