6. Randall-Hobbs House, 1882 - 1884

A brick house with an arch in front of it.
This elaborate Italianate style house was built from 1882 to 1884 for Frank Randall. A later owner, Reuben Hobbs, built the carriage house and was treasurer of the Aurora Cotton Mills. Note the limestone arch over the entrance and the paired brackets and panels under the eaves. The porch replaces the earlier entrance and side porches.
