Early 19th century; mid-19th-century addition. 1004 N. Broad St.

Hillcrest is a one-and-a-half-story frame side-passage house with a later two-story frame addition and a one-story addition to that. Like the Dimmette House (LU5) in Lunenburg, the builder used the typical Southside scheme of adding a parallel two-story addition to an existing house. Unlike the Lunenburg house, here the addition is not gable-fronted but follows the orientation of the earlier section.
