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.

Go ahead and reject and I will complete a re-submittal. I forgot to turn off street labels.
