The relatively bare house lot is high above Main Street and on the west side of the latter. A gable-roofed, double-door garage stands northwest of the house. Between the house and Main Street is a large concrete restraining wall and a driveway.
Two one-over-one windows flank a modern, centrally located, projecting, enclosed entranceway. The full-length, hip-roofed facade porch is supported by four columns, marked by a slight entasis. Although both the porch and enclosed entranceway are clearly later additions, the rear lean-to and the central chimney are probably both original. Additions have been made to the northwest and southwest corners.
In 1773 Daniel Hall received from his father Timothy Hall a 3 1/2 acre tract on the west side of Main Street, across the street from Timothy’s grist mill. Hall was a prominent eighteenth century citizen cited in Fowler for his numerous positions of leadership in Durham. He was also State representative and a delegate to the Convention to adopt the Federal Constitution. When Daniel sold the lot to Heth Camp in 1783, shortly before his death in 1790, it had a dwelling house, barn and shoemaker’s shop upon it. The house remained in the Camp family until 1900.
Located in a prominent location near the center of town in the Durham Historic District, this house is significant as the home of one of the early town fathers of Durham.
