Built in 1937. Hoover built the house for he and his family.
This house predates the Gropius House (built in the same town) by a year. When the plans were submitted to the town building department Hoover was asked why he was building a gas station so far back from the road - it was not visible from the road and no cars would drive up there to get gas.
A beautiful home - an example of sophisticated simplicity.
