The Thomas Wolfe Memorial was Thomas' mother's boardinghouse and has become one of literature's most famous landmarks. The two-story house was built in 1883, influenced by the Queen Anne Style of architecture with 18 foot high-ceiling rooms. The house was purchased by Wolfe's mother, Julia Wolfe, in 1906. She later live at the house with her son Thomas. In 1917 Julia Wolfe began modernizing the house by adding electricity, additional indoor plumbing and 11 rooms making the house twice its original size.
