This Romanesque Revival dwelling was constructed for Laura C. Armistead and her family in 1894 by her father Beverly A. Armistead, president of the Bank of Portsmouth. Identifying features of this architectural style are the round arches over thick, cavernous entryways and window openings, as well as the round towers.

In the 20th century, the home was converted to the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge 82. In more recent times, the house has become known locally as Dr. Madblood's Castle, the imaginary home of a local television personality and host of The Friday Night Frights.
