The Mecklenburg Medical Alliance and Endowment will host the Dazzling! 2010 Holiday House at the historic Myers Park home of Dr. William and Judy Verross on November 12-14th, 2010.
Holiday House brings together the area’s top floral and interior designers, who transform a local home into a fabulous holiday themed showcase. This year, more than 15 floral designers have signed on to deck the halls, turning the Verross home into a spectacular Holiday House. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Mecklenburg Medical Alliance and Endowment.
The Verross home was built by the Stephens Company, owned by George Stephens, a developer/contractor during the development of the new “suburb” of Myers Park. It is believed that construction took place sometime around 1912. It was first owned by Dr. Stokes Monroe. The house was rented for a short time to Henry Mc Aden, while his big house next door was being built.
After World War I, and around 1921, Dr. Thrift Ferguson purchased the home. It was in the living room at 934 Granville that 12 men met to plan for the building of Myers Park United Methodist Church.
Sometime between 1940-43, the Fergusons sold their home to Dr. Monroe Gilmore, one of the founders of the Durwood Clinic, which we now know as First Charlotte Physicians.
Today Dr. William and Judy Verross live in this historic 2-story brick rectilinear home on Granville Road.
