Request for Proposals
Happy Hill Shotgun Houses
The City of Winston-Salem is accepting proposals for the rehabilitation, design, and development of one or both shotgun houses currently located on Humphrey Street in the Happy Hill neighborhood. The City would like to encourage efforts to save these two historic shotgun houses, a building type from the early 20th century found in some African-American communities, which have survived in only a few locations throughout the City.

There will be one opportunity for interested parties to tour the exterior and view from outside the interior of both shotgun houses. City staff will be on site for this purpose from 2:00-4:00 p.m. on May 22, 2014.
View photographs of the exterior and interior for 716 Humphrey Street [pdf/26mb/43p] and/or 720 Humphrey Street [pdf/18mb/33p].
