Throop-Hackney House – Grace

Built about 1926 for W Howard Throop, this one-story wood frame gabled house was veneered with polychrome sandstone, limestone and petrified wood in 1936 by C.H. Hackney, the second owner. Although the stone work is not as unusual as the similar house at 316 Grace Avenue, the building is nevertheless a fine example of the use of this local building material. The house has a large offset entrance porch with round arch openings and a trellised porte-cochere which extends from the opposite side. Hackney, who worked as a fireman, also added a two-story hipped, stone veneer garage and apartment in 1936 when he stone veneered the main house. He lived here until 1943.
