John G. Hall House (221 Main Street)

Created By: Oxford Historic Preservation Commission


John G Hall House. Located at the northeast corner of Main and High streets, this imposing, two-story, truncated-hip-roofed Neoclassical-style house is one of the most impressive in the district. The house is three bays wide and triple-pile with plain weatherboards, one-over-one wood-sash windows, a replacement asphalt-shingled roof, and two interior brick chimneys. The house was constructed in 1913 by John Green (1856-1932) and Helen Cannady Hall (1878-1926). Hall opened a drug store on Main Street to the north in 1879. The Halls left the spacious dwelling to their children, who converted it into apartments in the late 1930s. Sold in 1986 by their son, Sam, the house has been converted back into a single-family dwelling.
