James Van Hoose residence
Van Hoose specified that the materials and construction should be of a type to withstand strong storms, and this quality survived a test when his one of the few houses in the vicinity left without serious damage from a tornado which struck in 1901.
The house remained in the family until the Great Depression. In 1935 the house was sold to the Brown-Service Funeral Company, which built their corporate headquarters next door. It was renovated into a Ridout's Funeral Home and later demolished for construction of the Travelodge Motel in 1961.
