Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
Sited on a large, open lot in the heart of Boone's commercial district, the Jones House is one of the few reminders of the pre-WWI era in Boone. The combined Queen Anne and Colonial Revival style house was built in 1908 by Dr. J. Walter Jones, a prominent citizen and respected physician who served the community from 1902 until his death in 1925. The house is sited above main street on a gently sloping lawn separated from the commercial area by a stone retaining wall and three mature maple trees. Boone's present-day commercial district is basically the product of mid-century growth, and the existence of a sizeable residential lot in its midst harkens back to late nineteenth and very early twentieth century land-use patterns. The town of Boone purchased the house in 1983 and has begun to rehabilitate it for use as a community center, preserving it and the open space around it, a precious commodity in the fast-growing university town.
