This two-story stucco Queen Anne structure was built for Thomas E. Coneley, a foreman with Southern Railways, on a lot purchased in 1904 from Jethro Rumple. Rumple, noted for his 1881 history of Rowan County, lived in the house on the corner of South Fulton and West Horah Streets.

The Coneley House has as a steep hip roof intersected by splayed gables. Its second story front façade features a Palladian window which is repeated at a smaller scale on the front gable. The house’s asymmetric, textured exterior is common to the Queen Anne style. Its new owner has added a two-story circular screened porch with a winding stair to its rear, creating a whimsical effect when viewed from South Ellis Street.
