The Two Daughters - 6 Hooper Ave

Historical Feature

Overview

No votes yet

In the period 1890 - 1894, two neighboring Victorian cottages were built on Hooper Avenue and presented as gifts to his daughters by a generous father. both houses overlooked the amphitheater site. They are similar family-size houses, three stories tall, with wrap-around front porches on the first floor. But their layouts, roof styles and window placements are different.

This Victorian summer cottage was built for the family of Charles F. Fox. large windows n abundance insured cool ocean breezes for comfort in the summer evenings, and the wraparound porch protected the downstairs living ares from direct sun. At some point, the exterior surface was changed by the application of stucco; presumably the triangles of natural shingles on the front and side gables mean that that was the original material? Many original details survive inside the house.
