Ross House now (2013), photo by Deb Ross

The Ross House was built in 1892 for Hugh Ross, a downtown drugstore owner, who had businesses in the Reed Building and the Stuart Block. The original house was a somewhat more traditional foursquare design. Later owners added the turret and the stucco facing in the 1920s, long enough ago that the current look is worthy of its position on the local register in its own right. The house is on the local register and is located in the South Capitol National Historic District.
