- Paul B. and Jessie Stratton bought the property in 1920. The address was first listed in the city directory in 1922. Paul was a salesman.
- The Strattons sold the house in October 1927, the first of four sales of the property in 16 months. Interestingly for the era, the last three were all to individual women, none of whom listed husbands on the deeds.
- Edith Willingham Womble (1890-1980) bought the house in March 1929 and owned it for 15 years. She lived in Winston-Salem and used the house as a rental property. She was married to Bunyan Snipes Womble (1882-1976), an early partner in what is now Womble Bond Dickinson, a Winston-Salem law firm with offices in 19 U.S. cities and seven cities in England and Scotland.
- From 1950 to 1971, the house was owned by Mary A. Tennent (1890-1971), assistant registrar of the Women’s College.
