This is not Lenin. He did not wear such clothes. He did not have much hair. He had no such awards. He did not serve in the Russian army. It's a different person.
My husband was stationed at Ft Bragg (1976-1979) and we lived right behind the marina. My husband worked pt for the marina, also. What happened to the marina and the red brick house behind it? Fayetteville was always a great place to live there was so many things to do. We used to go to White Lake and to the coast to Carolina Beach.
This house was featured in Extreme Makeover.
A spite house is a building constructed or modified to irritate neighbors or other parties with land stakes. Spite houses often serve as obstructions, blocking out light or access to neighboring buildings, or as flamboyant symbols of defiance. Because long-term occupation is at best a secondary consideration, spite houses frequently sport strange and impractical structures.
In 1830, John Hollensbury's home in Alexandria, Virginia was one of two homes directly bordering an alleyway which received an annoying amount of horse-drawn wagon traffic and loiterers. To prevent people from using the alleyway, Hollensbury constructed a 7-foot (2.1 m) wide, 25-foot (7.6 m) deep, 325-square-foot (30.2 m2), two-story home using the existing brick walls of the adjacent homes for the sides of the new home. The brick walls of the Hollensbury Spite House living room have gouges from wagon-wheel hubs.

Built 1883, The Mansard Roof House is constructed in the Second Empire style and is notable for its mansard roof, a steep, decorative metal roof crowned with a cast iron railing of fleur-de-lis design. Frank W. Thornton, a substantial Fayetteville merchant, built the house. He never lived in the house and it is believed he built it to rent, even though its elaborated detail is unusual for a rental property. This house is the only good surviving example of this style of residential architecture in the Fayetteville area.
