This house is a perfect example of the uniquely American Foursquare style house, which was part of the Craftsman architectural movement. It was built by Henry Herman Hohorst in 1905, on property he subdivided later, into the neighborhood, 1938 Hohorst Addition. The house remained in the Hohorst family for ninety-six years. In 2002, after the house had been empty for several years, major rehabilitation work was done to save the neglected building. A new addition was made to the rear of the house, which is not visible from the street. The front façades, visible from the street, retain their historic integrity. Henry Hohorst was a native of Galveston who moved to Lafayette around 1883. He was active in Lafayette’s civic affairs and served on the City Council and later served as Lafayette Parish Assessor.
