General Note

  • Accompanying note: "The Hays Hood House is one of Tallahassee's few remaining examples of Queen Anne architecture. The style, popular in the 1880s and 1890s, is characterized by turrets, towers and elaborate decorative woodwork that lead some to call them 'gingerbread houses.' Jesse Hays, who helped start Tallahassee's first phone company, had the house built in 1910, using a pattern from a house-pattern book. During World War II, the home was converted into apartments and Hays moved into an adjoining cottage. In 1949, Hays sold the house to Tallahassee insurance agent Buck Hood and his wife, Rebecca, who converted it back to a single family home. In 2004, the widowed Rebecca Hood sold the house to the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, which restored the house as its new headquarters."
