Location: 324 South Academy Street
Built: 1902
Designated in 2017

The Sams-Jones House is an excellent and locally rare example of a Queen Anne cottage dating to the turn of the 20th century. The house is also significant for its connection to Cary High School as the home of Andrew Fuller Sams, a teacher and principal at the school in the earliest years of the 20th century. 

Members of the Jones family owned the house for 61 years beginning in 1914. 

It retains important elements of the Queen Anne-style, including projecting gables to front and side, dominant front-facing gable, asymmetrical façade, pyramidal hipped roof, interior-located chimneys and decorative millwork on the wrap-around porch.
