History

It was built between 1925 and 1927, and consists of a rambling aggregation of intersecting wings and extruding gables, dormers, decks and porches. It included a pool that Hook believed to be one of the first private swimming pools in the Kansas City area. The house is significant both as a work of Mary Rockwell Hook and for its long association with her and her family (husband and two children). The home was in the family until 1972.[2]:17-18

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
