HYPATIA HOUSE -1215 N. Broadway

The Hypatia house was designed by architect U. G. Charles in ca. 1903-1906, for G. T. Walker, manager of the L. C. Jackson Coal Company. It's an excellent example of Dutch Colonial Revival architecture with an eclectic full front gambrel roof.

The two and a half story brick house features a front facade wrap around porch, Tuscan columns, north side portecochere, wide eave overhang and clay tiled roof. The home contains extensive examples of leaded and stained glass windows.

The Hypatia Club, founded nationally in 1886 by Mary Elizabeth Lease as a woman's self improvement organization, was politically active in the early days of women's rights. The local chapter of the Hypatia Club purchased the home in 1934.
