The Dr. Josephus House was built in 1820 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Dr. Josephus Hall House was originally constructed as classrooms for the Salisbury Female Academy (1820-1825). The Hall House became a residence in 1825 when local businessman Maxwell Chambers and his half-sister Rebecca Troy purchased the property and made it their home.

Dr. Josephus Hall purchased the home in 1859 and began to transform it into a grand Southern residence. The house served four generations of the Hall family before its purchase by Historic Salisbury Foundation in 1972, along with many of its original contents, from Hall’s great granddaughter.

Walk in the footsteps of the Hall family as you experience original furnishings, wallpapers, painted ceilings, and a desk used by Andrew Jackson when he studied law in Salisbury in the 1780’s. Stroll the grounds of the Hall House site where you will discover the restored kitchen building (ca. 1825)  where enslaved workers lived and worked, and a cannon once used at Salisbury’s Civil War Prison. With over 200 years of history, the Hall House has many stories to share with its visitors.
