Negro tenements, no. 2.

The 1888 version of Sanborn Company’s fire insurance map of Wilson reveals two sets of “negro tenements” just east of the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad. One set stretched along North Pettigrew Street. The other comprised two dwellings set well back from Nash at numbers 638 and 639.
