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.

I’m not sure of the date or corporate affiliation of this service station, but it was opened by Oscar Garrison in the 1930s.

Old Post Office, Homer

Beginning in the 1930s, this was operated as a post office by Oscar Garrison. Its construction, though, would suggest other historical uses. Another remaining structure (Mason’s Store), not pictured here, also served as the post office for a time.
