Long Description:
The Hodges House built in 1887 is an impressive Queen Anne structure that was originally located downtown beside Holy Trinity Church. Built as a one-and-a-half-story house, it was purchased in 1908 by Dr. James R Hodges, a Gainesville doctor and physician for the University, and remained in his family until 1940. Extensive remodeling added a wrap-around porch with nine columns, a side turret with two ornamental bands of fishscale shingles and an adjacent two-story bay. In 1979 Mary and Mark Barrow saved the house from demolition by moving it and completely renovating it into four apartments. Painted a dazzling blue-grey with white trim, it has attracted local and national attention.
