Excerpt from the boundary expansion form mentioning the inclusion of the house on page 24:
The economic activity generated by the mills influenced the design of many of Hillsboro’s buildings. Multiple buildings feature living space on the upper stories and commercial space in the raised lower levels. This arrangement is popular in urban areas where space is limited and the population dense. In Hillsboro, properties on the north side of Charles Town Pike were laid out on relatively narrow lots allowing commercial activities to be placed in the lower levels. Constructing a building specifically for commercial use did not make financial sense as living space could easily be provided on the upper stories. This arrangement is illustrated at 36966 Charles Town Pike and 36982 Charles Town Pike. The buildings were constructed on raised foundations that allowed the commercial space in the basement story to be accessed separately from the domestic space via exterior doors on the façades.
