Former General Courtney Hodges Home

This Queen Anne style of Victorian architecture was built in 1893 at a cost of $5,000 by John Hicks Hodges, editor and owner of the Houston Home Journal from 1880 to 1924. This was the childhood home of General Courtney Hodges, Commander of the First Army during WWII. He was the first soldier in the history of the United States Army to rise from private to four-star general. General Hodges also served in the Philippines, Mexico and Europe in World War I. The Hodges family is posing for a picture in the front yard of this house in 1893. A later picture taken in 2019 reveals no structural changes to the house in its 120+ years of existence.
