Hogsett House – Hillcrest

Joseph B. Hogsett, president of Ballard Ice and Fuel purchased in 1926 two and one-quarter lots fronting on Hillcrest Street, formerly called Country Club Road. Construction of his house probably occurred soon after, as he resided here by 1928. The house remained in the Hogsett family until 1981. Hogsett’s residence is a careful reproduction of a Colonial Georgian period house, though of larger proportions. Clad in wide weatherboard siding, the two-story gabled house features a central pedimented portico supported by massive Tuscan columns. The strictly symmetrical composition is balanced on each side by single-story loggias on Tuscan columns.
