The F.N. McCubbins House sits on one of the more prominent sites on the east side of North Main Street. While the four-square house was influenced by the area’s bungalows, it is predominately Colonial Revival in style and appearance. It was built around 1926 by F.N. McCubbins, a well-known local realtor and businessman, and was one of the first sites (three lots in total) sold and developed in the Steeleworth subdivision, located east of the mid-section of North Main Street.
The two-story frame house was severely damaged by fire in December 2016 and was donated to Historic Salisbury Foundation a year later for its Revolving Fund. The Foundation is currently working to clear out the fire-damaged interior and to stabilize the exterior of the house. The McCubbins House, which should be on the market for sale by year end, is featured on OctoberTour as a “work in progress.” Photo by Sean Meyers
