The house was built in 1901 in late Victorian style by Charles DeBois, a railroad man from Chicago. After fire damage, it was stuccoed and rebuilt in Northern Italian / Southern French Chateau style in the early 1930s. One owner was Babe Kaufman, who ran a juke box and coin machine business with a warehouse in town. She installed a Selectomatic 200 jukebox in the basement. neglected and overrun for many years, the property was restored to its former grandeur beginning in 1994. note the impressive stone walls.

Streetscape: Hooper Avenue runs up a steep, 45 degree hill at each end of its semi-circular course. its eastern end surrounds the hillside auditorium. Houses along this arc are on a high overlook down to the harbor and the bay. The Hoopers, starting with Captain Samuel Hooper who served in the Ware of 1812, were major landowners in Leonardville and Atlantic Highlands, including this elevated tract and all the way down to the bay. In 1881, Samuel's son, Judge Edward Hooper, sold 80 acres in the upland portion to the Methodist-run Atlantic Highlands Association, reserving his homestead leans on today's Scenic Court and 300 feet of waterfront below.
