Vernacular Office Building, Homer

Though expanded and moved a short distance, this structure dates to the early settlement of Homer. It may have been a lawyer’s office, considering its proximity to the courthouse. Typical of the era, it featured a vernacular interpretation of the Greek Revival. It’s located in the yard of the Jolly House.

Also known as the Candler-Hill House, this is best known today as the Hill Hotel, which was in operation until 1952. Originally built as a Plantation Plain with Greek Revival details, it was expanded by T. F. Hill for use as a boarding house and hotel.
