High Point Designers’ Showhouse
ASPIRE DESIGN AND HOME magazine and the Junior League of High Point, Inc. (JLHP) are partnering to present the 2019 Designers’ Showhouse to help raise a richly storied landmark residence from the ashes, as well as raise funds to benefit JLHP charitable initiatives.
The Dalton-Bell-Cameron House, located at 1013 Johnson Street, is the earliest documented Craftsman style home in High Point, NC. Since its construction in 1913, the historic home has twice endured devastating fires. After the second, the community rallied to save the home from demolition. The High Point Preservation Society asked the JLHP if they would hold a show house there to help the owners offset expenses throughout the costly preservation efforts.
“This is not just any Showhouse; this house embodies the essence of preservation and perseverance,” explained JLHP Show House Chair and Past President, Mary Powell Y. DeLille.
Top design talent from across the country is part of this meaningful transformation including Rachel Cannon, Meg Caswell, Cynthia Ferguson, Libby Langdon, Madcap Cottage, Kristen McCory, Courtney McLeod, Holly Hollingsworth Phillips, David Santiago, Gray Walker, and Scot Meacham Wood.
Grand Opening Party and Fundraiser | Friday, October 18, 2019 | Held jointly at Showhouse and JH Adams Inn, located directly behind the home
The Showhouse will be open to the public October 19-November 3, 2019.
