Based in Greensboro NC, Blandwood House had once been home to John Motley Morehead, a governor of North Carolina. It was first built in 1795, with the two-floor farmhouse even preceding the city?s founding in 1808. Blandwood House Greensboro, North Carolina, had later undergone expansion in the 1820?s.

Alexander Jackson Davis, a famous architect in those times, had introduced a prototype design for the property in 1844 and the additions he had suggested were completed in 1846. This then became the oldest standing symbol of Italianate architecture in the country.

In 1970, Blandwood House had been nominated and later registered in 1988 as a National Register of Historic Places.

A general tour of the home under trained guides would consist of the original structure built in 1795, the additions made in 1822, and finally the A.J. Davis additions made in 1846.
