Hoffer-Hulen House – Elizabeth

A large two-story L-plan residence, the Hoffer-Hulen House is clad in smooth stucco, with glazed green-tiled hipped and gabled roofs. A covered terrace with Tuscan columns and hipped roof fills the angle of the two wings. The house is a picturesquely massed eclectic design with vague references to Renaissance architecture. It was designed by Wiley G. Clarkson and built in 1922 for Temple B. Hoffer, an oilman with a variety of business interests. From 1935 until 1941, the house was owned and occupied by Maj. Gen. John A. Hulen, commander of the 36th Division, U. S. Army, during World War I, and later president of the Fort Worth and Denver City Railway. The Hoffer-Hulen House is a contributing resource in the Elizabeth Boulevard Historic District (local and national).
