Located at 313 East Bay Street, the house was built for Dr. Lorenzo Frink, the great grandfather of actor, Joseph Cotton. Frink built his house around 1890 after fire and storms damaged his former house on this lot. Dr. Frink was a local surgeon and a member of a prominent Brunswick County family. The building has had several additions over the years. Kate Stuart's boarding house was across the street until it was destroyed by Hurricane Hazel in1954.
