1. The Fox-Hawkins House Marker
Inscription.  
This vernacular Italianate-style dwelling hugs Chestnut Street at Green on a lot acquired for twelve-year-old Harry S. Fox by his parents, Morris J. and Jane Seaman Fox.

In the 1890's John A. Hawkins and his wife, Ann Dickens, began their 25-year residence. The Halifax, Virginia, native prospered as a lumber foreman and an insurance agent, John Hawkins, Jr., who grew up here, distinguished himself as a local pioneer in x-ray radiology.

Restoration of the property, one of several acquired by the D.H.S. since the 1970's, has realized the goal of promoting Green Street's vintage houses for owner-occupants.
