J.W. Hinson built the Hinson House in 1922. He owned the town’s mule barn and was the area banker. Remarkably versatile and hardy, mules were a staple of the family farm during the turn of the century. Mr. Hinson would travel to St. Louis to buy mules for resale to farmers regionally.
Mrs. Sadie Hinson was originally from New Orleans. A lady of social graces and fine taste, she insisted on owning a home on fashionable Lafayette Street. For the sake of building Sadie her dream home Mr. Hinson persuaded the Crigler family to sell them the existing lot. Thus, the Hinson House was born.
The house is a “bungalow” design, a popular style during the early part of the century. Architecture was just beginning to move away from the classical victorian style that had dominated the previous era.
