The Victorian-era home of Raleigh mayor William H. Dodd and later of attorney and legislator John Wetmore Hinsdale features a variety of architectural details. The Dodd-Hinsdale house combines an Italianate-bracketed cornice, a Second Empire mansard-roofed tower, and an ornate Eastlake porch. In the late twentieth century, the dwelling narrowly escaped the wrecking ball and was renovated for use as a restaurant.
