Architect G. S. H. Appleget designed the Heck-Andrews House for Confederate Colonel Jonathan McGee Heck. A characteristic mansard roof caps the Second Empire house and a dramatic central tower adorns the facade. Patterned slate and ornate brackets, window surrounds, and porch posts make this one of Raleigh's most distinctive Victorian-era houses. Currently owned by the state, the house will soon be returned to residential use.
