Map it for me

The Davis House at William & Mary is located at 110 North Boundary Street. The property contained a house and a bungalow on the Blacksmith Lot. The bungalow was probably on the site of the College Apartments, 112 N Boundary Street. The house was likely built between July 1925 and January 1928. In 1928, W.A.R. Goodwin purchased the house from E.T. Davis and rented it to William & Mary for use as faculty housing. In 1930, the College purchased the property from the Williamsburg Holding Corporation. In 1987, the house became the Office of Special Programs.
