Hicks House – Harrison

A sophisticated Prairie Style house with a high central block and low symmetrical dependencies that project forward like small pavilions. Windows are grouped into over-scaled, abstract grids. The brick walls have been painted and the columns of the porte-cochere replaced. The first recorded owner was Harry Hicks, president of the King Midas Oil and Gas Association, Ltd. The house appears to be eligible for the National Register in spite of its alterations. The Hicks House is a contributing resource in the Mistletoe Heights Historic District. The accompanying photograph was taken in 2007.
