Overstreet House – Hillcrest

John R. and Bettie Overstreet resided in this house when it was frrst listed in the 1928 City Directory. Overstreet owned an automobile dealership on W. 7th Street A vague rendition of the Classical Revival style, this brick veneer house is a two-story block topped by a hip roof clad in green tiles. A central portico of three bays is supported by paired Tuscan columns. A porte-cochere, also supported by paired Tuscan columns, projects to the north; it is balanced by a one-story wing to the south. The brick surface has been painted and the porte-cochere enclosed, but the house is in good condition otherwise.
